WORLD VS USA ALL-STAR GAME

The USA would be pretty good in a World Cup format but I think they would get smoked if it was USA vs. the rest of the world in one game.

and plus, then we couldn't have the THIS TIME IT COUNTS bs.

The World team would be loaded. USA vs Venezuela, Cuba, or Domincian Republic alone would be good matches, then combine those 3 and they'd be stacked. :-o

I don't think USA vs. the World would even be interesting. USA would get it's teeth kicked in.

Exactly. Then it would have to be North America vs. World bs with Canada, US, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Just for fun I went through and saw what the teams would look like...

USA

C Mauer
1b Tex/Lee/Helton/Thome
2b Giles/Utley/Kent/BRob
SS Jeter/Rollins/ M Young
3b ARod/Chavez/D Wright/ Blalock
LF Crawford/Dunn/Bay/Floyd
CF Edmonds/Pierre/Hunter
RF Sheffield/Huff
DH Hafner/Big Hurt

WORLD

C Ivan Rod/V Mart
1b Pujols/Delgado
2b Soriano
SS Tejada/Furcal/Reyes
3b Mora/ Aramis
LF Manny/ MCabrera/C Lee/Godzilla
CF Beltran/A Jones
RF Vlad/ Abreu/ Ichiro
DH Ortiz

USA Pitching

SP Big Unit
SP Schmidt
SP Prior
SP Clemens
SP Oswalt
RP Lidge
RP Ryan

WORLD Pitching

SP Johan
SP Pedro
SP C Zambrano
SP Bartolo
SP Livan
RP K Rod
RP Rivera


A game of these 2 teams would be real fun to watch, but it seems kind of arrogant to do USA vs WORLD. Why not Domincan vs World? or Venezuela vs World?

Yeah, those countrys could easily field teams of their own. Like Venezuela would have this retarded staff

SP- Johan
SP- Carlos Zambrano
SP- Escobar (when healthy)
those are just the first 3 that come off the top of my head.

Those two teams look almost exactly even to me. I'm also guessing the original poster was thinking of USA as including all MLB players, which it wouldn't. If it were MLB vs the world I think 'we'd' kick butt.
