Ian Desmond went 2-for-3 with a homer Saturday as the Nationals topped the Cardinals 6-2.

Team USA picked Jimmy Rollins as its shortstop for the WBC, but one wonders if Desmond might not have the superior choice after he hit .292/.335/.511 last season. Perhaps he'll get his chance next time around. Desmond is 5-for-9 this spring.
