A few days ago I was listening to "The Compound" a podcast hosted by Ian Happ of the Chicago Cubs and they were giving their "Dream Roster" for the World Baseball Classic that will (hopefully) be played next year. So I have now decided to give my dream roster for the 2021 World Baseball Classic team. All current MLB players are in play and must be born in the United States.
