A-Train in the World Cup?

Dontrelle Willis is talented - that point is beyond contestation. But who knew he was a soccer star and a member of the USA team that will be in Germany this coming June?

According to Joe Girardi:

"I understand (Willis) is going to be gone and I understand the importance of the 'World Cup' to Major League Baseball, but from a selfish standpoint that doesn't help me,'' Girardi said.

When Selig said he was trying to show case the sport and the players to more international markets, I thought he was talking about baseball.

Since MLB and FIFA are interchanging players, I want to know one thing:  Can Freddy Adu pitch?
