The official press from apartheid Cuba states that the challenge in the World Baseball Classic is going to be "tremendous." I believe the real challenge for them is to keep players from defecting.The real challenge is not who the opposing pitchers are, but keeping tabs on Joe Cubas and those evil Cuban exiles.
So let's keep score, not baseball, but defections!
