Baseball’s Dream Team

The U.S. baseball team beat China 9-1 on Monday. Doesn’t it seem as though it should be even more lopsided? Well, it would be if baseball followed basketball's lead and sent its top professionals. Logistics obviously stand in the way of that with the major league season in full swing during the Olympics. But what if it was possible? Who would go? We’re not going to make the mistake that was made in the World Baseball Classic — taking a bunch of players who used to be good (Roger Clemens, Jason Varitek, Al Leiter). We’re focused on dominating now. We're probably just dreaming, but here's our team. Baseball won't be going to London in 2012, so it'll have to stay a dream team for now.
