One of the premiere international sides isn't allowed to compete just because Bush and his cronies seem to think that the Cold War is still going on. Promote this thread!

Otherwise, Cuba will be replaced with either Nicaragua or Colombia.

Since last post: 171 days Last activity: 2 days # 3 Posted on 18.12.05 1456.06 Reposted on: 18.12.12 1456.08 I don't know about this, actually. If, for the sake of argument, Cuba is allowed to participate, what of the Cuban defectors? I don't see Orlando Hernandez or Jose Contreras pitching for Cuba and I don't see the Cuban government allowing them to come back for a one-shot, so is it truly a representation of Cuba's finest? I'm not saying Cuba shouldn't be allowed in, but this is just something to think about.

Y!: # 4 Posted on 19.12.05 1719.24 Reposted on: 19.12.12 1719.40 Castro already said he won't allow the defectors to play for Cuba. I think this will all work itself out during January or early February.
