It's February and still no news on the Qualifiers. In December, MLB said that the WBCQ would be determined in January. It is apparent that the WBCI wants Japan to participate, but the JPBPA has rejected all offers. There is a lack of solidarity in the Japanese ranks, because the NPB owners approved the latest offer. It's all about control over Sponsorship Rights, both sides have not budged and much worse not talking to the media. The next WBC is about 13 months away, it's decision making time. Is the WBCI's tough posturing nothing more than just that? They have had more than enough time to choose a substitute for Taiwan to replace Japan. Any of the substitute Nations would have been ready to sign a standard contract with a pen in their hands. The most likely outcomes are:
  1. The WBCI caves and Japan hosts the 2013 WBC Asia Group in the Spring
  2. The JPBPA caves and Japan hosts the 2013 WBC Asia Group in the Spring
  3. Both sides cannot reach a compromise and Taiwan hosts the 2013 WBC Asia Group in the Spring
  4. WBCQ Postponement to Spring of 2013 and WBC Postponement to Fall of 2013
  5. Indefinite Cancellation of the WBC

Apparently the WBCI is still trying to negotiate with JPBPA, they're just not getting the media involved. I don't expect any announcements to be made until a few days after the Superbowl. A tournament without its defending champion is a not as intriguing, but a cancelled tournament is even less appealing.

WBC Approximately 375 days for the 2013 WBC...

It's been over ninety days since I last updated my predictions. Their is still uncertainty regarding the participation of Japanese players and the WBC Steering committee has been tight lipped about the Qualifiers. In the mean time here is my latest guess of how the WBC and its qualifiers will look like. Host nations have one asterisk and double asterisks are for groups hosted by the United States. First, with Japan:

2012 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers
PHP Code:
Asia-Pacific      North Atlantic**     Latin America        EMEA (Europe/Middle East/Africa)
Taiwan*           Canada               Panama*              South Africa
Thailand          Spain                Nicaragua            Germany
*
Philippines       Great Britain        Colombia             Czech Republic
New Zealand       France               Brazil               Israel 
2013 World Baseball Classic
PHP Code:
Japan*            Mexico*              Venezuela            United States    
South Korea       Cuba                 Netherlands          Puerto Rico
*                         
China             Italy                Dominican Republic*  Australia 
AP Qualifier      NA Qualifier         LA Qualifier         EMEA Qualifier 
...And secondly, without Japan:

2012 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers
PHP Code:
Asia-Pacific      North Atlantic**     Latin America        EMEA (Europe/Middle East/Africa)
Taiwan*           Canada               Panama*              South Africa
Thailand          Spain                Nicaragua            Germany
*
Philippines       Great Britain        Colombia             Czech Republic
New Zealand       France               Brazil               Israel 
PHP Code:
Final Qualifier**
Asia-Pacific 2nd Place
North Atlantic 2nd Place
Latin America 2nd Place
EMEA 
(Europe/Middle East/Africa2nd Place 
2013 World Baseball Classic
PHP Code:
A**               B                    C                    D
Final Qualifier   Mexico*              Venezuela            United States    
South Korea       Cuba                 Netherlands          Puerto Rico
*                         
Australia         China                Dominican Republic*  Italy 
AP Qualifier      NA Qualifier         LA Qualifier         EMEA Qualifier 
Let's see how much longer we have to wait for any kind of announcement.
