Wow that's an ignorant statement. Tejada didn't forget how to play baseball all of the sudden.. nor did Arencibia learn how to

Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
Tejada is 38 and a shell of who he once was. He's pretty mediocre now.
Meh. He has 20 years of experience playing at a very high level. Yes he may be aging but he still takes very professional at-bats.
He wasn't good last year... very average the previous year before that. I just don't see him as anything other than a liability.
To each his own. I'd rather have him at the plate than several of the guys we had hitting last night.
Btw he wouldn't be hitting in the 2 hole for the best team in the world if he didn't have something left in the tank.
Ignorant implies I don't know baseball. I'd put tejada away right now with no labrum, and I've put Pena away plenty of times in St. lucie. Watch him fish breaking ball any time he gets behind in a count.
Slow bat is sloowwwww. Slow feet are slowwwwww.
Also lolz at best team in the world. Lolz. That pitching staff is mediocre in this tournament.
Ryan Vogelson is our starting pitcher tonight.... 'Nuff said.
Take that up with the people who do the rankings....
I'll let you take a mulligan on this one.
The rankings one too.
boom david wright!
USA needed that
you aint kiddin
Man it would be nice if Mike Trout would get out of the stands and go suit up.
you aint kiddin there either haha.
wish I wouldve went to tonights game instead of last night. might head out to see the canada game tmrw too
DR is the #1 ranked baseball team in the world. Vogelsong is the 4th best American pitcher on his pro baseball team. No mulligan needed. Nobody is saying USA baseball isn't the best.. I'm saying this team isn't.
Have him call his teammate Hamilton while he's at it.
What bothers me most about it is none of the stud pitchers joined yeah Dickey won the Cy Young but that was a fluke IMO. I mean no Verlander or Kershaw,Price, Strasburg is understandable.
the amount of stud players who turned it down is pretty sad in general, not just pitching.
Too much money tied up to risk pitting more innings on those arms
Just naming a starting lineup not playing
C - Posey
1B - Fielder
2B - Pedroia
SS - Tulowitski
3B - Longoria
OF - Trout/Kemp/McCutchen
DH - Hamilton
SP - Verlander/Kershaw/Price/Cain/Strasburg/Lee
RP - Kimbrel/Motte/Papelbon
Link? This isn't CFB, rankings mean a big pile of doo doo baby.
Vogelsong is an all-star, and you can't name a single guy on the DR staff that is better. This team on paper is substantially better than any other in this tournament.
I'm on my phone. World baseball rankings should be easy to google. Lol @ calling him an all star like he is Matt Cain. He made one appearance which was heavily scrutinized bc his manager selected him & placed him there, not the voters. I could name 15 better American starters than him off the top of my head.
Vogelsong? Lulz at you and your west coast bias
