El Presidente says Cuba will play
2006-01-25 21:47
by Bob Timmermann

Cuban president Fidel Castro confirmed (sort of) that Cuba will play in the WBC.

Unless, of course (translated from Spanish)
"that is if (the Americans) don't start in on messing around with not giving the visas, or if they go crazy."

And Castro is starting to spin his country's chances, just like a response a presidential campaign worker.
"We're not going to say that we're the best," Castro said.

"They have taken away a lot of the best pitchers offering them millions of dollars," he added, referring to Cuban players who left for big-paying jobs in the Major Leagues.

My fearless prediction: Cuba will win the WBC and not a single Cuban player will "defect."

Will the Dominican Republic team, with Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez and Pappy Ortiz prevent the dream from from coming true?

The U.S. team? It will be eliminated early.

When you think about it, (ideologies aside), a Cuba-U.S. matchup is something like the 1980 Olympic hockey match between the U.S. and the USSR.

Of course, it's not likely that the U.S. and Cuba would meet since they're in different groups.
