    Pathetic.

    Cuba should get the winnings they deserve for their impressive baseball tournament

    No they shouldn't. They agreed not to take any winnings before the tournament even started. You can't negotiate a deal to play in the classic and then except to not be held to it.

    should their share be directed to the katrina relief fund?

    They agreed that they couldn't even give their share to charity, so no they shouldn't be allowed to donate it. But...I believe that instead of MLB (or where ever the money comes from) keeping the money, they should donate it to the Katrina fund. Yes, it may sound like I'm just playing with semantics, but at least this way the agreement won't be broken.
