Ok hopefully this will get some convo going whilst I'm gone...

Your thoughts on Team Canada's roster for the 06 World Baseball Classic?

I think we'll surprise alot of people with our team. Our starting pitching looks good along with out OF and out Corner IF.

I'm a little worried about our MIF and C spots though and out Relief core.

Yes not having Walker will hurt, but him on the bench with his knowledge of the game will help our young guys forsure, and Ernie Whitt, WOW can't say enough about the guy, I love him.

But anyway how about your thoughts, maybe even your thoughts about the whole WBC itself and your thoughts on should this of been something thats been a long time comming??

Let's hear somethoughts people....

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved” (Helen Keller).

Only through experience of trial and suffering

Man I should be making more money than ARod. Man I went through a craphole childhood plus a craphole baseball childhood and learned how to play by maybe one or two coaches I had plus reading up about baserunning/hitting/fielding, and pitching to learn how to read pitcher's tendencies. Do you think that learning the hard way pays off more than the easier way? And I'm not just talking about money here!

Mr 3000,
The one word you forgot to highlight was character..By experiencing difficulties you gain insight and appreciate what you have achieved and it is precious vs having a so called "easy life"...this may not be exhibited in baseball but in other areas of your life. is a very small part of the person you are and will become.
True, but it's hard to build character when it was nearly ripped apart when I was growing up...rebuilding that in itself to a half-decent level of functioning hasn't been easy so far. I just don't understand why everyone tries to shield me from the bad things in life like drugs or premarital *** (or according to my mom-Paxil-which she doesn't approve of). I always thought that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.....I don't get it.
