I find it insanely difficult to pretend to care — let alone genuinely care — about the WBC. Thankfully, there are guys like FanHouse’s Matt Snyder around who do. Matt has put together a Team USA roster which, at first blush, looks pretty darn good.
My only quibble is a political one: I’d have Youkilis and Howard as my first basemen. Not because of skill, necessarily, but because I’d really like to have a Jewish and a black player lead our team to victory and really stick it to that dirtbag Hitler.
Like I said, I really don’t follow the WBC all that closely.
