Yep, it is back!! WBC starts off today and goes through out March!

Pool A
Japan (The defending champion, shit loads of top NPB players)
Cuba (shit loads of great "amateur" players who haven't deported yet)
Brazil (good mixes of minor-level MLB and NPB roster)

Pool B
South Korea (The runner-up, also shit loads of top Korean league players)
Chinese Taipei

Pool C
Venezuela (Miguel Cabrera, Sandoval, Andrus, K-Rod, etc)
Puerto Rico (Beltran, Pagan, Molina Brothers, etc)
Dominican Republic (Cano, Reyes, Ramirez, Cruz, etc)

Pool D
USA (Still mediocre with Teixeira, Mauer, Braun, Stanton, Dickeys etc)
Mexico (Adrian Gonzalez leading)
Italy (Could be decent for a European team)
Canada (Votto, Lawrie, Morneau, Axford etc)

The tournament starts in the Far East first for Pool A and B in Japan and Taiwan respectively, then Pool C and D starts in the following week.
