WBC All Classic Team

Below is the World Baseball Classic Team. Scouts have to be drooling at the numbers Balentien put up. He broke the single season Japanese homerun record a couple years ago but has been battling injuries the last couple years. It would be interesting what kind of numbers he could put up in the major leagues, though he is best used as a DH.

We also have an alternate World Baseball Classic Team. These are some players that also deserve some mention and may have been more deserving of the named team.
