Bunch of Reds in the WBC

There are quite a few Reds in trying out for the upcoming World Baseball Classic. I hope those arms are well taken care of. On team Canada, Joey Votto will split time at 1st and DH with Justin Morneau. For the Dominican, Edison Volequez, Johnny Cueto, and Francisco Cordero will throw and Willy Taveras and utility man Wilken Castillo will try to make the team. Catcher Ramon Hernandez will play for Venezuela and Jerry Hariston Jr. will play for Mexico. There are also quite a few minor leaguers trying to make a squad. One to watch, is big time Reds prospect pitcher Kyle Lotzkar who will pitch for Canada. It'll be worth watching what he'll do against the best hitters in the world.
