Like many, I jumped on the Dutch bandwagon at the last WBC. This one might be worth a trip to Miami in March.

Anyone know how a country like Holland is automatically in the first round, but teams like Canada, Taiwan and Nicaragua have to play in?

I really, really like the WBC but I expect alot of big name players to drop out, which is a shame.
