    Canada WBC roster 2020

    Gonna be looking good. Still have a few holes to fill, but if we can get all these guys out:

    C) Andy Yerzy
    1B) Josh Naylor
    2B) Freddie Freeman
    3B) Vladimir Guerrero
    SS) Abraham Toro

    OF Tyler O'Neill
    EH Joey Votto

    SP1) James Paxton
    SP2) Jameson Taillon
    SP3) Nick Pivetta
    SP4) Mike Soroka
    SP5) Cal Quantrill

    I know Freeman doesn't usually play second, but let's get his bat in there anyways.
    Still need a couple outfielders, and some RP, but some really good Canadian players coming up.

    I would expect Russell Martin to still be playing at that point, with Yerzy unlikely to have any major league experience.

    Yeah, but he's born in Canada, so he can play for us if he wants.

    Yerzy is a catcher anyways, not a shortstop like Russel Martin.

    I would think he would choose Dominican for a chance to win the tournament. Hopefully the roster looks pretty good in a few years. Canada has to qualify again after failing to win a game last time.

    Canada could field a good team in baseball and especially basketball but the problem is they can't get a very good turnout among its athletes. Too many liberals who shy away from patriotism up there.

    Canada Basketballís participation woes are over. The next generation has been very good internationally at the grass roots level. Thatís about to change in a big way at the menís level with lots of lottery and first round picks on the way. The NCAA class next year is star stacked led by RJ Barrett who is far in away the best player in his age group. And dominated the US High School ranks.

    Also helps that his Dad is very involved in Canada Basketball. Lets hope Baseball can catch up to our big gains in Basketball.

    That's good. They could have medaled the past couple Olympics if they could get turnout.

    Oh they absolutely should have been in the last Olympics. They had an easy path and got upset by Mexico I believe it was. That game Triano actually benched Wiggins. They had another opportunity in Manilla but the conditions were not very good and some key players were without a contract and couldn't play. Canada has had some issues with close out games despite dominating the tournaments. They are well on there way to clinching a spot in the FIBA Americas. And once they get into that tourney with their talent base should easily qualify for the Olympics. Some really strange circumstances has screwed Canada recently
