From Roch: "The international signing period begins on Jan. 15 and Baseball America’s Ben Badler reported that the Orioles will give Dominican center fielder Braylin Tavera a bonus in the $1.5 million-$2 million range, the 18th highest in baseball.

Tavera, born in February 2005, ran the 60-yard dash in 6.47 seconds at a Dominican Prospect League showcase."

Pretty cool to be back in the hunt. I'd rather see them dump a couple of megabucks on the best international pitcher. This is where they said they'd pick up the pace, right? A million or three is chump change. Take the chance where we desperately need a talent infusion. Half our superstar kid OFers profile as CF. You can't tell me there's not a Dominican pitcher better than just about anybody we have. Maybe this Badler guy is just blowing smoke though.

In counties where Donald Trump received at least 70 percent of the vote, the virus has killed about 47 out of every 100,000 people since the end of June. In counties where Trump won less than 32 percent of the vote, the number is about 10 out of 100,000.

Elias might be on crack.

I'd, love them to work their way into Cuba. You could pave whole expressways with un-mined gems from that place.

Only 19 Cuban-born players on ML rosters last yr., as opposed to 64 from Venezuela and 98 from D.R. (USA Today)

We could become shithole central. Think of the marketing.

Apparently, we are the favorites to sign Cuban infielder Cecar Prieto.

That actually sounds more like an Elias move. College aged shortstops are a favorite.

O's listened to me. Mike and I worked out a deal for Cesar to defect from their Communist tropical paradise.

Read that he's 22 which is kinda old. But down there, that means he's probably been a pro for 8 years and could lead Bowie in hitting.

A little more about him. He's definitely a talent.

Might mean he was 22, when he turned pro 8 years ago. Thanks for the article.

I thought Havana Pete had a no-Cubans policy.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.
