I got nuthin'

The World Baseball Classic started recently. This is a tournament where teams from all over the world (i.e. United States, Canada, Japan, Puerto Rico, etc.) are assembled using Major League Baseball players. Naturally, the players weren't necessarily born in the country for whom they're playing. For example, Twins shortstop Nick Punto is playing for Italy despite being born and raised in Southern California. And Alex Rodriguez (born in NYC; grew up in Southern Florida) probably couldn't find the Dominican Republic on a globe but yet would have donned their uniform were it not for his hip injury.

All that said, I really have no interest in viewing this hair-brained idea of MLB Commissioner Bud Selig.

However, the Team USA roster gives up the Top 10 reasons why we should indeed tune in.
