Dominican Republic, Mexico rosters set

The link is in Spanish for the D.R. roster, but for those interested.

Dominican Republic Pitchers: Miguel Batista, Daniel Cabrera, Bartolo Colón, Francisco Liriano, Dámaso Marte, Odalis Pérez, Fernando Rodney, Jorge Sosa, Duaner Sánchez, Julián Tavárez, Salomón Torres, José Acevedo, José Valverde, Ervin Santana. (However, Santana has said he won't pitch, so go figure.)

Catchers: Alberto Castillo, Juan Brito and Ronnie Paulino.

Infielders: Adrián Beltré, Pedro Féliz, David Ortiz, Albert Pujols, José Reyes, Alfonso Soriano, Miguel Tejada, Plácido Polanco, Ronnie Belliard.

Outfielders: Moisés Alou, Juan Encarnación, Wily Mo Peña, Willy Taveras.

Presumably Feliz will also see some duty in the outfield. But probably not Alfonso Soriano.

Mexico Pitchers: Luis Ignacio Ayala, Rigoberto Beltrán, Francisco Campos, David Cortés, Jorge de la Rosa, Elmer Dessens, Edgar González, Esteban Loaiza, Rodrigo López, Pablo Ortega, Antonio Osuna, Oliver Pérez, Roberto Ramírez, Dennys Reyes, Ricardo Rincón, Ismael Valdez, Oscar Villarreal.

Catchers: Humberto Cota, Gerónimo Gil, Miguel Ojeda.

Infielders: Alfredo Amézaga, Jorge Cantú, Vinny Castilla, Juan Castro, Luis Cruz Bojórquez, Erubiel Durazo, Benjamín Gil, Adrián González, Oscar Robles. (Robles has said he won't play)

Outfielders: Karim García, Luis García, Luis Carlos García, Mario Valenzuela.

So Mexico can field an all-Garcia outfield.

I thought Robles said he WOULD play?

Anyway, it strikes me that this isn't really a "Classic" without F. Valenzuela on the roster.

Robles decided to pull out after Grady Little dropped some unveiled hints that he wouldn't get a major league spot if he left because Ramon Martinez was in camp.
