World Baseball Classic Finals Prediction

this is an audio post - click to play


I predict that the United States will play...the Dominican Republic in the March 20th Championship Game at Petco park.

Why?

Hmm...let's see.

Dominican Republic:

SP Bartolo Colon
SP Pedro Martinez
RP Antonio Alfonseca
RP Duaner Sanchez

1B/DH David Ortiz
1B Albert Pujols
2B Robinson Cano
2B Alfonso Soriano
SS Miguel Tejada
3b Adrian Beltre
RF Vladimir Guerrero
LF Manny Ramirez


United States:

SP Jake Peavy
SP Dontrelle Willis
SP Barry Zito
SP Roy Halladay

RP Jason Isringhausen
RP Billy Wagner

C Jason Varitek
1B Derek Lee
SS Derek Jeter
3B Eric Chavez
CF Johnny Damon
CF/LF Carl Crawford
LF Adam Dunn
LF Barry Bonds


These aren't even complete lists, but no one really compares to the depth of these teams with the possible exception of Puerto Rico.

For a list of players by country look no further than the World Baseball Classic site.

Thanks to Fruits and Votes for the info.
