Team USA Adds Longoria….

Team USA announced that Tampa Rays 3B, Evan Longoria will replace Chipper Jones on their roster. To get a player of Longoria’s caliber this late in the tournament, I think is a huge upgrade for Team USA.

I hope Longoria gets the chance to start (perhaps at DH instead of Jeter) in Team USA’s Semi-Final game against Japan on Sunday. Though this late in the tournament I am not so sure that is going to happen. Unfortunately, Longoria will probably serve as a pinch-hitter late in the game if Team USA needs one.

In other Team USA news, there has been no replacement named yet for Kevin Youkilis. It looks like Mark DeRosa will start at 1B on Sunday.
