Canada announces Olympic rosterBy
This one’s for all you hosers out there: the 2008 Canadian Olympic Team has been announced (page 7 of the pdf). Highlighted by two very good prospects in Nick Weglarz (Indians) and Mike Saunders (Mariners), the Canadians boasts a respectable lineup but iffy pitching. Brett Lawrie, the Brewers first round pick (16th overall), is on the squad despite turning 18 just this year. Crazy.
The US Team was selected last night, but has not been made public. Remember, the US squad in yesterday’s Futures Game was a trial a team, a group of players in the running for the Olympic team.
