WBC to be canceled?

The World Baseball Classic may be cancelled reports John Donovan of Yahoo Sports. Donovan says that it is "likely" that no games will be played, at least this year. Cuba has apparently been banned to participate in the games which could force the IBAF (International Baseball Federation) to cancel the WBC enitrely.

I was personally very exctied to see games like the U.S. versus the Dominican Republic, however I'd be even more excited seeing players like Pedro Martinez (who seems to be less likely to play everyday), Billy Wagner, among others living through a full season. I think that baseball has to re-think this whole idea of playing the WBC in Spring Training and either play it during the winter around December, instead of winter leagues, or play it about a week or so after the World Series.
