View Full Version : Castro Calls Bush 'a Fool' for Keeping Cuba Out of WBC

Fidel Castro said Friday that the Bush administration was wrong to prohibit Cuba from sending a team to next year's World Baseball Classic.

"He is very much a fool," the Cuban president said of Bush. "He doesn't know who the Cuban baseball players are, or that they are Olympic and world champions. If he knew, he would know something about this country's government."

Castro mentioned the ongoing dispute during the second day of regular sessions of the island's National Assembly.

Sports and politics shouldn't mix, Cuba should be allowed to play. This is the same thing Germany is trying to keep Iran out of the world cup. Very stupid

Don't have much of an opinion about whether they should play or not, I just want to say that Castro can suck it.

We should let the Cuban team come here and play, hopefully a few more of their guys will slip away in the middle of the night and sign MLB deals.

This is stupid and you cannot call it a world championship if the world can't play in it. I hated when our athletes were not allowed to compete in Moscow. Castro can suck it but let the ballplayers play.

I could care less about this World Baseball Mockery anyway.

I hate Castro and he can eat it but they should let them play.
