WBC Update (9-13-12): Germany and France release rosters, and more

France’s can be found with a link to it in PDF form here, while Germany’s can be found here..

If you look ahead on MLB Network’s schedule, you can see that the Jupiter final will be on MLB Net on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 8 PM, while the Regensburg final will be on the next day at 1:00 PM EST.

The teams from the upcoming September qualifiers that have yet to release their rosters are Israel, Great Britain, Spain and the Czech Republic. They probably will be releasing theirs very soon, as it’s less than a week until first pitch.

I guess I can root for France since they have Andy Paz.

I was thinking this would be the new BBTF Diplomacy thread.
Hmf.

Apparently a few other teams, including Israel (aka "Team Jewish Americans"), have released their rosters, but I can't find them anywhere, only little snippets here and there. Once I find them, they'll go up on another update.

I don't think the Lepanto Opening works in baseball.

Good idea. That would give me two reasons to click on it.

I've been successfully masquerading as a fairly cool person since high school, so please don't tell anyone I said that.

That guy really buried the lede there by mentioning Donald Lutz last. Although I see his 2012 was definitely not resembling his 2011...but if he played in the complex leagues there's a good chance he was probably hurt with something. Reds aren't an org I follow unless their players are destroying Brewers org pitching. Max Kepler had an OK season in the Appy League and didn't even get mentioned in that blog post. I'm imagining how Kai Gronauer's career would have gone if the Twins had signed him instead (or if he wasn't on the perma-DL...was he really hurt again this year or has he joined the Brotherhood of Minor League Backup Catchers Stashed on the Phantom DL?)

Donald Lutz, by the way, was born in America, but he was raised in Germany... so he isn't quite the same deal as some of the other "passport" players.
