    Sure, we need all the valid information we can get. Of course, the accomplishments in the minor leagues aren't the same as accomplishing that in the majors, but we can make those comparisons.

    Reynaldo Ordonez 9 3115 767 246 129 17 12 310 289 287 64 976
    His batting average is almost the same between the two leagues. I always wrote he could not hit a water melon back home.

    His is a product of the aluminum bat. He came after 8 seasons in Cuba. He was in the refugee camps in Bahamas. Then, he went to Japan with his Japanese wife. Finally, he came to the USA. I do not know how much time he lost.

    Yuniesky Betancourt 1 211 54 256 11 5 1 370 296 15 0 981
    http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/a...ilb&pid=435358

    Where is Orly? He said that Betancourt hitted 3 for The Villa Clara Oranges. I doubt it with this kind of numbers.
    Orly: you seem to be gone from Baseball Fever. Prove to me he was the third hitter for The Oranges.

    Alex Sanchez http://tampabay.devilrays.mlb.com/NA...layerID=400128

    He never made a team in Cuba. He was either to young or not that good or a combination of the too.

    Kendry Morales http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/a...ilb&pid=434778

    He hit 37 Hrs in 3 series in Cuba. He hit 24 in the USA minor leagues in half a season after not playing for 2 years. Where is the minor league pitching?

    Juan Miguel Miranda: He is in the Dominican Republic waiting to get legal papers.

    Ayalen Ortiz: He is in the Dominican Republic waiting to get legal papers.

    Juan Muniz http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/a...d=milb&cid=249
    He did better in AA than in Cuba. He wasted a lot of time in Brazil waiting for legal papers.
    Yobal Duenas http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/a...ilb&pid=430577

    He played 14 seasons in Cuba. He wasted a lot of time in El Salvador trying to get his legal documents. He came to the USA close to being 35 years old. Gabe Lopez and J. T. Stotts recieved more playing time than him. These two are younger not necesary better. These two have more potential than Duenas because they are younger.

    Yunel Escobar http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/a...ilb&pid=488862

    He was a reserve in Cuba. His stats in Cuba are not great. Now he is the number 4 prospect in the Braves system. How would better players still in Cuba be ranked?
    He was drafted in 2005 and placed in A ball where he did very well. He should not be in A ball.

    Joel Perez http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/a...ilb&pid=489205

    Drafted in 2005 and placed in rookie league. He hit with some power but his ave was not good. He did not have 20 AB in Cuba as far as I can tell.



    As far I can tell, Kendry Morales and Juan Miguel Miranda were good in Cuba and are young enough to do well in the majors. Betancourt has his glove and needs to hit 270 to be in the majors for a while. Escobar has to work harder to make it. All the others have a very long shot to make the major leagues.

    Now, don't forget Alain "El Toro(The Bull)" Soler. He is a pitcher and got some talent. He has not pitched a lot in 2 years while in the Dominican Republic.

    Major League teams must do a better job scouting Cuban players and gathering info on them before creating false expectations. As for Davenport, he needs to take a trip to Cuba whenever he can. The New York-Penn league is A ball. In A ball you have very young players that are just pullishing their skills. Some of the best prospects also go to AA ball unless they are coming from high school. Mention one name in that league that is close to Jose Contreras and Orlando Hernandez. Contreras came form Cuba to the majors. Hernandez spent 2 months in AAA because he was suspended from playing in the Cuban National League after his half brother Livan defected. He could have come straight to the majors.

    There is no way that the Cuban National League is A ball. I am done with this topic. You are entitled to your own opinions. Not all Cuban defectors were great in Cuba to begin with. Why should we expect them to become major leaguers?

    I do not want to sound to smart, but watch out with the Cuban pitching in the BWC. I have been warning some of you. Pitching and defense win ball games and championships. Teams with good pitching have a better shot than others.

    I just discovered this site/forum. Some very interesting discussions.

    I've been following Cuban baseball very closely for about 8 years. I agree with Cubano100% that Davenport's study yielded an inaccurate comparison. There is simply no way the Cuban National Series is comparable to Class-A in the U.S.

    Tossing aside all baseball statistics and just applying some basic math, the average Class-A team is lucky to yield just one Major League player. That would suggest the Cuban National Series currently has but 16 Major League-caliber players, which is laughably absurd.

    As Cubano100% pointed out, a lot of young players came to U.S. and did better than they did in Cuba. Yuniesky Betancourt was completely unheralded when he left Cuba and a lot of people around MLB gasped when he signed the big contract with Seattle, yet he reached the big leagues in 3 months.

    Another example is Yunel Escobar (Braves). Escobar played 4 full seasons in Cuba and was only a .270 lifetime hitter with 6 home runs. In half a season in U.S., he tore up A-ball and matched his Cuban career mark for HRs.

    (I don't know Davenport's methodology, but it seems as if he might have assumed, incorrectly, that the players on the National Team are actually Cuba's best players, which is false.)

    Cuba has had talents well above A or AA ball. That is not something I have disputed. That is so because if guys don't defect, they have nowhere to go. The question is, how many of them are there and how do they affect the average quality of play? Data like this helps nail down the issue. Sometime when I have some time to really dig into it, I'll do so.

    It's not only the majors creating false expectations. Actually, I think the main problems are 1) agents for the defectors, who have a vested interest in having their players seen as budding superstars, and 2) well-meaning but at least overzealous fans of Cuban ball.

    Cuba could do well in the WBC--and maybe not. Either way, as I've said, I'm not sure how much that proves. Even if Davenport is right, the National team should probably be two steps (maybe more) up from the sixteen team league. Teams that get blown out aren't very good, but I doubt that will happen to Cuba. How much do the 2004 Olympic results mean? About as much as the WBC--but it will be good for fans to see all these talents together in a way that hasn't happened in the Olympics.

    Jake -- It seems hard to say Morales was a disappointment. He had been away from competition for over a year, came to U.S. in May, tore up A-Advanced, and then was absolutely on fire in Double-A by the time the season ended. After that, he had a good showing in the AFL, albeit with doubles power and not HR power.

    Keep in mind, on top of the cultural adjustment, he started in High-A, which probably 2% of new players do, and then he was seeing every pitcher for the first time in High A and Double-A.

    Jake: What else do you want the guy to do? He was suspended from the Cuban league. He went to the Dominican Republic and did not play to much. He came 2 months after the season started. He did was he was supposed to do. Let give the guy sometimes to get used to the cheese burgers and Ceasar salads as oppose to black beans, rice and roast pork. He needs to learn some English and get used to America. May be you were born in the USA, but I did not. I understand what an immigrant go through. It does not matter how much money you have. You need to fit in.

    I thought I was done with this topic!

    Is really the Cuban Nationbal League an A ball?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The New York-Penn State league is for very young players that need to work on their skills. Is it?



    Since Rene Arocha defected in 1993, these are the Cuban pitchers who have seen MLB action. I went ahead and look for the Japanese pitchers stats since 1993. I am doing the pitchers because it is where the larger pool is. For the position players, non of the Cuban defectors have come with Ichiro or H. Matsui resume back home. Maybe Kendry Morales or Juan Miguel Miranda, but he only play a 2 or 3 seasons back home and he is not in the majors anyway.

    In my opinion, Japanese and Cuban players share some similarities such as leaving their best years in Japan or Cuba. In other words, they come past their primes. In addition to this, the following are some issues afecting players from these two countries.

    The Japanese and Cuban players have to deal with an adjustment period, language and culture barrier. You may argue that Spanish is closer to English that Japanese. However, Japanese people have access to Satellite English channels while Cubans do not have that luxury. Our society is a very closed society. The only country that has a closer society than us is North Korea. I am sure some Muslim countries are very strict too on this. I never had contacts with tourists or watched an English TV stations while in Cuba. You can say I was a cave man isolated from the world. This is the only way Castro can survive. We do not have access to the Internet either. The Cuban government, if you can call it a government, does not want defectors to do well.

    Japanese players have money and live in a free society. I never heard of the Japanese government retaining or blackmailing their families or trying to escape Japan to play in the ML. They can come straight from Japan and join MLB and comeback to Japan in the offseason. We do not have that luxury.

    The Japanese pitchers have a .05 ERA better than the Cubans.

    How good Japanese baseball is? Don't some experts consider it close to Major Leagues too.

    My friends, there is no way that the Cuban National league is A ball.

    The stats are there. Nobody can hide them.

    Castro has done many things wrong. But that does not mean we still do not have good players.
    What happen to the USA NHL. How many Russians and players from the former East Communist block made it right away?

    How many countries have the baseball structure that Cuba has? I updated the Cuban Baseball Structure Thread. I hope when Castro is gone from the picture, the new government maintain some of the structure like championships for the 10 through junior categories. The ML teams will have a feast 90 miles south of Key West. That will mean the end of the Cuban National League and the rebirth of the Cuban Winter League.

That would be an incredible amount of talent on just four teams. But it wouldn't really be league.

    The Cuban Super League was created when the IBAF allowed professional players compete for their countries. The Cuban National League only have 90 games. The ML has 162 games. By adding the Super League, players can play 30 high level extra games to prepare against the professional players.
    In the past, Cuba had the National League and the Selective League(Serie Selectiva). The Selective serie had 8 teams.
    They keep changing the format and structure. That is for sure.

    "45th Cuban National Serie 2005-2006 Standings as of 12/22/05"

    The 45th Cuban National Series presents Isla de la Juventud Grapefruit Croppers as leader of Group A. The surprising Grapefruit Croppers are enjoying the biggest lead among group leaders. Other group leaders are Industriales Lions, Las Tunas Magicians and Granma Sorrels.


    A spectacular closing of year waits for the 45 National Series with Isla de la Juventud as the main protagonist. The Grapefruit Croppers had won 9 games in a raw before losing to Ciego de Ávila Tigers. Its impressive nine consecutive victories gave them a balance of (17/9).


    In Group B, Los Industriales Lions lead the group with a (18/8) record. The Lions are followed by the Havana Cowboys and the Santi Spiritus Roosters.


    In Group C, Las Tunas Magicians have the best record in the tournament with (19/7). This group also features the Villa Clara Orange Growers at (16/9) who were displaced to the second place after a spectacular beginning and the Ciego de Ávila Tigers with a (15/11) record.


    In Group D, Granma Sorrels are in first place with a (16/10) record. The Sorrels are followed by the Holguín Hounds and the disappointed champ Santiago de Cuba Wasps.


    At these moments, team hitting stand at excellent 281 although few home runs (220). Team fielding average is a high 970 and team pitching stand at 4.31 showing an obvious improvement because now there are eight teams that are below four ERA. The best team pitching ERA is a 3.26 of the Industriales Lions.


    The 5 games difference between Isla de la Juventud Grapefruit Croppers over Pinar del Rio Cigar Makers, the traditional leader of Group A, is due to the great performance of the renewed Grapefruit Croppers team commanded by Armando Johnson but also by the Cigar Makers poor offensive production. The Cigar makers pitchers also have had mixed results led by veteran Pedro L. Lazo (3-3) and Yunieski Maya (2-3).
