Team Cuba Manager
And then there's Cuba. Like Japan, the Cubans don't have any major leaguers on the roster. And like Japan, this Cuban team is very, very dangerous. Just ask China, who fell to Cuba 12-0.
The Cubans are ranked No. 1 in the IBAF rankings, so I think you have to pick them to go through.
Here's how I see this playing out. Cuba and Japan will win the opening games. On the loser's side of the bracket, the Netherlands will avenge an earlier 5-2 loss to Taiwan, while Cuba will win the rematch with Japan and advance to the semifinals.
