Well, my rock solid predictions were rock solid wrong. Japan and Cuba advance to the final game of the WBC. It's tonight at 8pm (Central) on ESPN. Should be a great game.
Japan last played Cuba for a championship in the '96 Olympics in Atlanta, where Cuba beat Japan 13-9 to win the gold medal. They met more recently in the '04 Olympics; Japan beat Cuba 6-3 in the first round, but Cuba ended up winning the gold, and Japan won bronze.
