The Dutch try to stay alive in the WBC, but they will have their hands full with Cuba. Diego Markwell will start for the Dutch while the Cuban starter is still on a "need to know" basis at this time. And I don't need to know apparently.
While Andruw Jones is supposed to be the Dutch star, more people will be interested in seeing Cuba's second baseman Yulieski Gourriel.
If Cuba wins, both Cuba and Puerto Rico move on to the second round next week in San Juan. If the Netherlands wins, then the Friday games will have meaning.
