A couple things.  Dex will be overjoyed that Cuba will be able to play in the WBC.  It was nice to know that when it came time to take sides Puerto Rico threatened to withdraw as host from the WBC if Cuba wasn't allowed to play.  

Over at ESPN Jim Caple and Buster Olney debate the merits of the WBC.

Buster: I think there is an excellent chance that as A-Rod plays for the U.S., he'll wear a cap that has the Dominican flag hand-stitched into the side, and the names of all Dominican leaders, past and present, written on the back of his shoes and underneath his cap.

Jim: That's funny. And sadly, probably not far off the mark.
