I think in my subconscious I was hoping that Ryan Dempster would be named to the Team Canada Roster for the World Baseball Classic, because I had a dream about him last night.
I dreamt that I was at a Jays/Cubs game at the Rogers Centre, and I was at field level hoping to get an autograph from one of the players. All of a sudden, I see Ryan Dempster come up, so I ask him for his autograph. He kindly accepts, and signs my baseball as we are chit-chatting about Canadian culture and whatnot. I then shake his hand, and he goes in for a hug (which at the moment, seemed eerily normal).
Anyway, after he leaves I look at my baseball and notice that he has signed it "Ryan Braun". What a joker, that guy.
We'll find out for sure if Ryan Dempster will be on the roster as World Baseball Classic rosters will be announced this evening at 6pm.
In the meantime, I guess I will just daydream about other possible roster spots for Team Canada. Jason Bay, you're next!
