The long wait until World Cup 2010 has already begun for Red, White & Blue supporters, but YA has no intention of waiting to handicap the field for the South Africa sweepstakes.

With coach (fill in the blank)'s roster deadline only 43 months away, we felt it best to start rating everyone's roster chances as soon as possible. Of course, we will continue to update our airplane manifest as the tournament approaches.

In our second 2010 edition, only Bobby Convey and Tim Howard are rated as unanimous locks. Meanwhile, Jemal Johnson, Pablo Mastroeni, Taylor Twellman and Quentin Westberg move into the 23 in place of Kenny Cooper, Todd Dunivant, Brad Guzan and Chris Rolfe.

As always, we welcome your feedback in the http://www.yanks-abroad.com/content.php?mode=contact&action=show§ion=generalYA mailbag[endlink].
