Happy Canada Day!

Right-hander** Ryan Dempster** pitched for the Boston Red Sox against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park Sunday afternoon.

And he gets the ball again Monday afternoon wearing a red jersey for our 13th annual Canada Day team.

What is** Ernie Whitt** thinking ... starting him on less than 24 hours rest?

Well, when we began selecting our Canada Day team in 2001 there wasn’t a World Baseball Classic and major leaguers were not allowed in the Olympics.

It was a mythical team then.

It a mythical team now.

Unlike the WBC there are not any meddlesome general managers or farm directors worrying about the season.

So, co-GMs **Doug Melvin** and **Alex Anthopoulos,** along with trusted assistant** Gord Ash** and **Andrew Tinnish** have scoured North America, all past WBC slight snits have been forgiven and our Hall of Famer commissioner** Fergie Jenkins** and his assistant **Pat Gillick** have TOLD everyone they have to play.

They had a few candidates to choose from: 17 Canucks in the majors this season (compared to four in 1970: **Mike Kilkenny, Ron Taylor, Claude Raymond** and **Pete Ward**), 94 in the minors, including seven on the roster for the triple-A all-star game ballot and another 12 at camps awaiting to be assigned.

Our crack medical staff of Drs. **Ron Taylor, Jason Smith** and **Marc Philippon** has everyone healthy.

This is Dempster’s eighth year on our team (starting in 2001-2002, 2010-12, closing in 2006 and 2007).

To introduce this year’s roster we turn the press conference over to Sportsnet’s** Erin Hawksworth,** since her brother** Blake Hawksworth** was on our team for four years (from the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers) and their grampa** Jack Poole,** a true Canadian, was instrumental in bringing the Olympics to Vancouver ... take it away:

1. Seattle Mariners centre fielder **Michael Saunders** of Victoria, B.C. makes his fifth start and sixth appearance on the Canada Day roster.

2. Montreal catcher** Russell Martin** of the Pittsburgh Pirates, is in his eighth start and ninth selection.

3. Etobicoke’s own, Canada’s best, **Joey Votto** of the Cincinnati Reds in his sixth start and eighth appearance. Votto being the team guy that he is, volunteered to play left field. (If **Matt Stairs** can play right in the 2009 WBC, why not?).

4. New Westminster, B.C.’s **Justin Morneau,** the Minnesota Twins first baseman, in his 11th start.

5. Making his Canada Day debut is DH** Freddie Freeman** of the Atlanta Braves since he’s WBC-eligible as his parents grew up in Windsor. Freeman was eligible in March but with Votto and Morneau there wasn’t room.

6. After three straight left-hander hitters, next is third baseman** Brett Lawrie** of Langley, B.C. in his fourth start.

7. In right will be **Jason Bay** of Trail, B.C. and the Mariners making his 11th start.

8. Playing second is** Peter Orr** of Newmarket and triple-A Lehigh in his seventh start and ninth appearance.

9. And hitting ninth in his Canada Day debut is shortstop **Sean Jamieson** of Simcoe, Ont. who is at class-A Visalia.

The handouts at the press conference show:

Pitching coach** Denis Boucher** of Lachine, Que., also has a rotation of Guelph lefty **Scott Diamond,** of the Twins, **Josh Johnson** of the Jays, WBC eligible since his father was born in Calgary, Houston Astros lefty** Erik Bedard** of Navan, Ont. and **Jeff Francis** of North Delta, B.C., recently demoted to triple-A Colorado Springs by the Rockies.

Toronto’s** Jesse Crain** of the White Sox; Port Dover’s** John Axford** of the Brewers; Aldergrove B.C.’s **Scott Mathieson,** Yomiuri Giants; **Andrew Albers** of North Battleford, Sask., triple-A Rochester; Gatineau’s** Phillippe Aumont,** triple-A Lehigh; Mississauga’s **Chris Leroux,** Yakult Swallows; Regina’s** Dustin Molleken,** Nippon Ham Fighters and** James Paxton,** Ladner, B.C. triple-A Tacoma are in the bullpen.

Calgary’s** James Henderson** of the Brewers will close.

On the bench are catchers **George Kottaras** of Markham with the Kansas City Royals and Vancouver’s** Mike Nickeas** at triple-A Buffalo; infielders are **Taylor Green** of Comox, B.C. injured in the Brewers system; **Skyler Stromsmoe** of Etzikom, Alta., triple-A Fresno; Langley’s **Jordan Lennerton,** triple-A Toledo and Laval’s **Jonathan Malo,** Quebec Capitales.

Back-up outfielders are London’s** Jamie Romak,** at triple-A Memphis,** Jimmy Van Ostrand,** Richmond, B.C. double-A Harrisburg; Vancouver’s **Tyson Gillies,** double-A Reading, **Adam Loewen,** Surrey, B.C., double-A New Hampshire and **Rene Tosoni,** Coquitlam, B.C., double-A Huntsville.

And a Happy Canada Day to you too.
