World Baseball Classic

Here's a list of players by team who will be participating in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. Just a couple of thoughts:

Many people who follow baseball think that Omar Minaya has a "thing" for players from the Dominican Republic but of the 15 players from the Mets who are participating - only Jose Reyes is playing for the Dominican Republic. I found that interesting.

These teams are either isolationists or their organizations have slim picking to choose from. The Nationals, White Sox and A's have just two player apiece participating in the games. Tampa Bay, Texas and the Giants are just sending three players apiece.

The Mets are sending 15 players to 8 teams while the Red Sox are sending 14 players to 11 teams.
