CF - Mike Trout - (nuff said)
1st - Prince Fielder - (my clean up guy)
RF - Matt Kemp - (again, nuff said)
LF - Josh Hamilton - (still dangerous with the bat)
3rd - David Wright - (excellent all-around game)
C - Buster Posey - (with this lineup, our best player bats 8th)

Bench: McCutcheon - OF/PH/PR, Mauer - C/PH, Ian Kinsler - 2nd/PH, Chase Headley - 3rd/PH, Jimmy Rollins, SS/PH, Billy Hamilton, SS/OF/PR
SP: Verlander - RH, Kershaw - LH, Cain - RH, David Price - LH, Roy Halliday - RH

A healthy Tulo >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

When he's on the field and healthy, there's no better SS in the world.

Ghost and I have pretty much the same view but I agree with the Tulo comment, but he'd have to be healthy. I'd also debate putting Braun in over Hamilton.

yes. but as a soccer player you don't have a limited number of minutes, and risk a 1-2 year injury if you exceed it. also the world cup takes place during the soccer season so the players are in game shape.

these guys are out there to win before they are fully worked up and then if they work up too soon it could cause problems in sugust september and october. what happens if one of these aces pitches into the world series, and end up well over 300 innings.


and as they said. there is actually no world competition that is as "important" as the world cup(horrible grammer so what, you want to fight about it?)
Anybody know what the Giants offered the Cubbies for Soriano last year?

I just find it funny that most people in the US give more value to their club being World Champions than to their country actually beating the rest of the World.

Then these tournaments come around and Japan actually earns the title of World Champions. Winning the WBC would mean nothing to you guys?

Theres no meaning behind the WBC. No history, and the teams arent truly the "best" each country has to offer. Besides, a small tournament doesnt dictate who has the best team. A real baseball season takes 7 months.

The WS Champion is a team of players that went through 6 months of baseball against the best players in the world trying their hardest, and then a 7th month against the best of the best. The WBC is little more than an exhibition.

still doesn't feel real sometimes.
I'll give a more detailed reply when I get to a computer, instead of on my phone while taking a dump.

Silly old man, you don't need 5 starters for a WBC, 3 would be just fine
When did this thread turn into the MLB discussions thread? I thought it was the Giants thread.
