    According to Adam Rubin, Abreu isn't ready. Damn, this is really unfair. :grouchy

          • Could Micheal Abreu really play RF or was his agent trying to boost his value up?

            Comment


            • I think he used to play RF, LF, 1B and 3B. I am sure he has played the LF and 3B for sure. I have to check with a guy that knows more about him than I do.

              J.P. and Kiefer:

              Do you guys remember Elias from the Cuban Forum posting that Abreu has played RF too?

              Comment


              • Yes, I do remember him saying that Abreu could play 3B and LF. I haven't seen him playing these positions, I only saw him playing 1B.

                • I really doubt Abreu could play anywhere other than 1B and maybe LF.

                    • I thought some of you may be interested in seing some plays from the Cuban League.

                      This clip shows some great Cuban players such as German "el Iman/the Magnet" Mesa" who is now retired. German Mesa was the reason why Rey Ordonez (3 Gold Gloves with the Mets) was sitting in the bench. As Cubans, we often wonder how many good players have wasted their careers for nothing back home since 1959.

                      The Latinoamericano stadium is the home of the Havana Lions (Industriales Blues) and The Metropolitan Warriors (Reds).

                      The two guys singing are called Buena Fe. This duo is very popular among the youth. The song is called Dreaming in Blue.

                          How about that Victor Mesa catch y CF jumping over the fence.

                          • Thank you Ellocoteee for the clip.

                            The great Omar Linares from Pinar del Rio also got robbed by German Mesa. The guy in 3B that the ball hit him is Villa Clara Orlando Acebey. After the ball hit his face, there was blood everywhere.

                            He is one of the best defensive 3B in the last two decades. He is old now.


                            Your boy Kendry Morales is hitting 330 after going 2-5 with 2 RBI.

                            • Player sees Cuban roots through baseballBy FRANK E. DeMARZO
                              [email protected]
                              His whole life, J.P. Arencibia has dreamed of seeing the land his family came from. This week, he was finally granted that opportunity.

                              A member of the U.S. National Baseball team, Arencibia traveled to Cuba to play in the International University Sports Federation World Championship Series, which begins play today.

                              Arencibia, who is of Cuban descent, said the chance to play in the country his family hasn't seen in decades was an indescribable opportunity.

                              ``It's cool just knowing that my family was born there. I never had the opportunity to go back and see where my roots are.''

                              Arencibia started at catcher for Miami Westminster Christian, where he graduated from in 2004.

                              The past two years, he has played for the University of Tennessee, batting .352 with 11 home runs, and a team leading 52 RBI this past season, earning a spot on the All-SEC Team.

                              Arencibia said that he hasn't been following the events too closely, but said he recognized the historic nature of what has been going on recently.

                              ''I haven't really seen much, but I hear that Miami's been going crazy,'' Arencibia said. ``A lot of people have suffered with him in power. I can't say it's hurt me as much as other people.''

                              As expected, Arencibia said that his family was thrilled when they heard the news.

                              ''They're excited. My mom wanted to go but it's really tough,'' he said. ``They tell me its a beautiful place but it's just run very differently.''

                              • Cubano, in that clip you also get to see Javier Mendez' signature move at CF, I never saw him drop one, and I've never seen someone else do it. You also see German Mesa's stellar double-play partner at 2b, Juan Padilla, one of the best DP combos I've ever seen.
