It is stuff like this......

from - Buck

that really pisses me off!

Cuba, baseball's dominant force for three decades at the Olympic and world-championship level, is being disallowed from playing in the inaugural WBC by the Bush administration in response to a congressional request that the Cubans be refused admittance to the United States on economic grounds.

You can blame it on South Florida politics.

Fidel Castro had agreed to let the guys play even though he knew some would probably defect. How can it be that Castro allows freedom to leave and we can't allow freedom to play?

God I hate politics.
