Manny was born in the Dr. Arod (who has never been to the DR) has a parent from there. accodring to Selig on XM radio they are using Olympic rules so if you can get a passport in a country you can play there.

On another note: They also are using IOC drug testing rules though if you test positive you won't be suspened from any MLB games :-D .

According to Gene Orza
"Basically what we've done is we've adopted the Olympic rule, which is essentially if you can get a passport, you can play for the country that you can get the passport from," Orza said. Manny has committed to the DR at least that's what the WBC site says.

Isn't Peavy still hurtin? I'm not sure if his doctors or the team would let him pitch in the WBC.

Here's who I have for Canada's lineup so far

1. Dudley Do Right?
2. Larry Walker
3. Jason Bay
4. Justin Morneau
5. Wayne Gretzky
6-9- Vancouver Canucks?

Rotation
1. Rich Harden
2-5- The Montreal Canadiens?

Closer
Eric Gagne as long as he's healthy to go.

Anybody else know any other Canadiens in the MLB that might be playing for Canada?
