USA Baseball Dream Team
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.
1st Base: Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs
2nd Base: DJ LaMahieu, New York Yankees
Short Stop: Trevor Story, Colorado Rockies.
3rd Base: Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies.
1st Base: Paul Goldschmidt, Freddy Freeman
2nd Base: Jeff McNeil,
Short Stop: Trea Turner, Paul Dejong,
3rd Base: Kris Bryant, Alex Bregman
Left Field: Cody Bellinger
Center Field: Mike Trout
Right Field: Christian Yelich
Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper, Aaron Judge
Manager: Aaron Boone (traditionally it is and should be Jim Leyland, but I am having fun with this list so why not)
Bench Coach: David Ross
