WBC rosters to be released tonight

The first round of World Baseball Classic rosters will be released tonight at 6 p.m. ET.

The provisional rosters will consist of 45 players for each of the 16 teams. The final rosters (up to 28 players) will be released on Feb. 24.

Derek Jeter (USA) and Alex Rodriguez (DR) have already committed. The Yankees most likely won't have many others, especially in the pitching department.

I like the idea of the WBC and I love supporting my country, but there really is no good place to have this tournament unless the season is stopped somewhere in the middle.

I think they should have the tournament right after the World Series in the warm weather areas.

have you heard anything about Mo? I remember in '06 he was on Panama.

No, he didn't.

I wouldn't mind stopping the season for like two weeks in July like they do in the NHL for the Olympics, but it seems like the higherups are opposed to it.
