I don't blame the Japanese who don't want it run by MLB. Why not run it the same time as the winter olympics and let the IOC run it? That removes the bias. Have it in Australia, Dominican, or anywhere that it's hot during the North American winter.

Lots of them already do: winter ball.
I don't think the US would have a chance at winning it all in the WC of Baseball. PR and DR have better teams IMO. Japan would probably be pretty good too, since not all their best players are in the majors. The only ones we know about are Ichiro, Matsui Sr, Matsui Jr, Choi, Tsao, Dave Roberts, Hasegawa, Sasaki, Ishii, Nomo, Otsuka, Takatsu, etc. I'm sure they have lots of good players left over there. USA might not even win a medal in that either
Also, Canada will have Koskie, Morneau, Reitsma, Dempster, Jeff Francis, Gagne, Bedard, Matt Stairs, Larry Walker, Quantrill, Zimmerman, and a few more probably. Reitsma might have been born in the US actually, but he's a Canadian citizen, so not really sure who he'd play for. That'd be something if Canada went further than the US in the WC of B Unlikely, but funny nonetheless.
