    It appears that the two teams that advance out of Pool A will once again get at least two exhibition games before they play Round 2.

    As Rally Monkey pointed out, the plan is to have each national team play at least 3 exhibitions. There are a few teams with 3 exhibitions announced so far, and there are some without any. Here is a breakdown by team:

    Australia
    Australia has 2 games with MLB teams scheduled, and is planning on playing a series (in 2006 it was an 8 game series) with Taiwan. They appear to be training in Arizona before they head to Mexico City, so it is likely they will have another match-up with a Cactus League team.

    3/5 Brewers
    3/6 White Sox


    Canada
    So far Canada has 2 games scheduled. They will most likely play another one on the 4th.

    3/3 Blue Jays
    3/5 Yankees


    China
    China only has an exhibition scheduled with the Yomiuri Giants so far. I wouldn't be surprised if that stayed the same.

    TBD Giants (NPB)

    Cuba
    We haven't heard anything out of Cuba yet. Perhaps they will play another 3 game series with Nicaragua?

    Dominican Republic
    The Dominican Republic is one of 6 teams who has 3 games announced.

    3/3 Marlins
    3/4 Orioles
    3/5 Cardinals


    Italy
    Italy has 2 games scheduled against Grapefruit League opponents.

    3/3 Nationals
    3/4 Marlins


    Japan
    In 2006 Japan went on a minitour and played several exhibition games before the tournament. I would expect the same this time around.

    TBD Giants (NPB)

    Korea
    Korea played the Lotte Giants twice before the tournament in '06. It's hard to say what they will do in '09.

    TBD Giants (NPB)

    Mexico
    Mexico is continuing their relationship with the Rockies by playing an exhibition. I am wondering if they will be playing any other exhibitions with MLB teams, or if they will play some exhibitions in Mexico. This would be a good opportunity for MLB to send a Cactus League team down to Mexico to play a game or two with the Mexican National Team. I doubt that will happen though.

    3/5 Rockies

    Netherlands
    Holland is another team that has 3 exhibition games with MLB teams. I'm wondering if they will play college teams again like they did in '06, or if they won't because of the added games against MLB teams.

    3/3 Pirates
    3/4 Reds
    3/5 Twins


    Panama
    Panama also has 3 exhibition games with MLB teams announced.

    3/3 Braves
    3/4 Tigers
    3/5 Astros


    Puerto Rico
    Puerto Rico will play 3 exhibition games against Grapefruit League teams. All 3 teams should provide solid competition.

    3/3 Twins
    3/4 Rays
    3/5 Red Sox


    South Africa
    Interestingly enough, we haven't heard anything about South Africa. If they do play exhibition games (I'm sure they will) they will likely come against Cactus League opponents because they will be traveling to Mexico.

    Taiwan
    As mentioned eariler, Australia and Taiwan are planning to again play a series. Last time around Taiwan also played La New Bears and the Sinon Bulls in Taiwan. It should be interesting to see what they do this time around.

    TBD Giants (NPB)

    United States
    The US will be playing 3 exhibitions against Grapefruit League teams.

    3/3 Yankees
    3/4 Blue Jays
    3/5 Phillies


    Venezuela
    Venezeula will also be playing 3 exhibitions against Grapefruit League teams.

    3/3 Tigers
    3/4 Astros
    3/5 Braves

    USA09, why do you have two entries for 3/5? The Oz-Milwaukee Brewers game is now there twice (see my highlights in red)....

    Colombian League (LCBP) president, Edinson Renteria is trying to boost up poor attendance by inviting Cuba to an exhibition series between the Colombian Champions and the Cuban National team. Renteria will be in Bogotá tomorrow meeting with Ambassador Julio César Guillén.

    So, any further analysis on the teams and their matches as done before USA09? You did a good summary before.

    It looks like China has the short end of the stick - only two warm-ups when other teams have 3 and China is unlikely to feature in the warm-ups for the Asia pool winner and runner-up. Taiwan has 11 warm-ups! But none against Australia itself, pity. Would have been nice to see a series between Taiwan and Australia.

    Also seems like Cuba won't be having much in the way of warm-ups.

    I thought the Colombian league was doing better. Colombia has a long baseball history, but has produced very little in terms of MLB players. Better players will make the league stronger. Maybe a MLB will put an academy in Colombia like the Rays just did in Brazil. Colombia is now probably safer than Venezuela and MLB teams are leaving Venezuela.

    Alright so here is where were at with all of the MLB exhibitions announced:

    ALL TIMES CENTRAL

    Australia
    Australia has 3 games with MLB teams. They will also take on the Japan national team. Will they fit in a game or two with Taiwan?

    2/24 Japan
    2/25 Japan
    3/4 Mariners - 8:05PM
    3/5 Brewers - 2:05PM
    3/6 White Sox - 2:05PM

    Canada
    Canada will play 3 games against MLB teams. Interestingly enough they are all against the same teams the United States will be playing before the WBC. Last time around Canada played the KIA Tigers, but I don't see anything happening along those lines this spring.

    3/3 Blue Jays - 12:05PM
    3/4 Phillies - 12:05PM
    3/5 Yankees - 12:15PM

    China
    China only has two games scheduled with NPB teams. I don't see them scheduling any other games, but I guess it is possible.

    2/27 Giants (NPB) - 8PM
    2/28 Lions (NPB) - 8PM

    Cuba
    Still nothing official on the Cuba front. NewEnglandAmazins posted an article that noted the Columbian League is interested in having their champion host the Cuban squad in a series. Also, I haven't heard anything, but it's possible Cuba will play another series with Nicaragua.

    Dominican Republic

    2/24 Australia
    2/25 Australia
    2/28 Lions (NPB) - 3AM
    3/1 Giants (NPB) - 3AM

    3/5 Rockies - 2:10PM
    3/6 Diamondbacks - 2:05PM

    Netherlands
    Holland will play 3 games against MLB teams. They will also take on South Florida. I'll keep checking in with them to see if they add any additional games against college teams. Since they will be in the United States in February I think it's quite likely they will.

    2/24 Bulls (NCAA) - 5PM
    3/3 Pirates - 12:05PM
    3/4 Reds - 5:05PM
    3/5 Twins - 1:05PM

    South Africa

    3/5 Athletics - 2:05PM

    Taiwan
    Taiwan will be playing an incredible amount of exhibition games. Most of them will come against Australian club teams. I wouldn't be surprised if they schedule some more with either Australia or some Taiwan club teams.
