USA vs. Puerto Rico, Wright vs. teammates

MIAMI -- Because Team USA lost the last game in Toronto to Venezuela, the Americans have to open the second round of the World Baseball Classic Saturday night against Puerto Rico.

That means a potentially tough first game, but it also means that USA third baseman David Wright will be facing Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado, two of his Mets teammates.

"I can't wait," Wright said Friday. "There's a lot of bragging rights. But I'm going to wait and do my talking once I see the results. I think it's going to be fun. One of the biggest things that makes this tournament interesting is that you play with rivals and against teammates."
