  • Why Yulieski Gourriell won't defect...

    I found out this weekend why Yulieski Gourriell won't defect... I went to spring training to go watch my brother play and one of him teammate is a cuban player that defected.. He and my father told me Yulieski Gourriell's father is a big figure in the government in cuba.. By Yulieski Gourriell defecting god knows what could happend to his father, maybe accuse him as traitor and making his life impossible... i also asked him if would any other player defect, he said NO... Just passing some info. to you guys...

    There have been over 100 baseball defectors and not one of their family members have been tortured or killed. Lourdes Gourriel wouldn't be the first.

      I know nobody has been tortured or killed.... I never said that, I said his father is a big Figure in cuba and they are not in need of anything per my source and he may be scared something could happend to his fathers status..... We know nothing will happen to his family but the question is does he know or is he a hardcore loyal to fidel dude... Ask yourself this, why not take 8 million (per MLB Radio), stay and live the life then get Nothing in cuba and wait for the other WBC in three or four years then he is 25 after realizing the stupid mistake he did... something was holding him back...

            I know what you meant. I'm just saying that nothing would really happen to Gourriel's father if Gourriel left. Worst case, he loses his manager's job. That wouldn't be the kid's fault; that would be Fidel's fault. Why punish the people who STAY?

            I think Gourriel is either a commie himself or his father has told him he'd be disowned if he leaves. Lourdes is definitely a commie.

                Speaking of defectors, I just found this on a blog:

                "On July 18, 1978, Cuban baseball star Pedro José Rodríguez was assassinated by Cuban agents while in Colombia for a exhibition series. He was thrown from the 5th floor window of his hotel room for attempting to defect."

                I've been following Cuban defectors for years and had never heard anything about this. Anyone know if it's true, or have further info.?

                  Check this out.. How can you not STAYYYYY what a commie idiot..

                  WBC Futures
                  The Classic featured more talent than any baseball tournament ever, and much of it had yet to reach the major leagues. Baseball America's never-ending search for prospects prompted us to talk with scouts about what players they saw in the WBC who would feel right at home in our Prospect Handbook. We set a 25-year-old age limit in order to steer clear of established big leaguers such as Japan's Daisuke Matsuzaka, a true No. 1 starter with seven years of service time in the Japan Leagues.
                  1. Yulieski Gourriel, 2b, Cuba
                  Gourriel lived up to his pre-tournament billing, showing five above-average, present, major league tools. "If he were available," one scout said, "he might get $20 million just to sign right now. He's in the top 15 major league second basemen right now, and he's 21.
                  2. Francisco Liriano, lhp, Dominican Republic (Twins)
                  Liriano, 22, wasn't as sharp with his command as he could be, but his fastball sat at 93-94 mph, complemented by an 87 mph slider and plus changeup.
                  3. Adam Loewen, lhp, Canada (Orioles)
                  An atypical performance for the hard-throwing but raw Loewen, 21: He topped out in the upper 80s and fought his command in 3 2/3 innings--only it came against an atypical lineup, Team USA's collection of all-stars.
                  4. Chin-Lung Hu, ss, Taiwan (Dodgers)
                  The 22-year-old ranks 10th in a deep Dodgers system.
                  5. Brad Harman, ss, Australia (Phillies)
                  The 20-year-old is the Phillies' No. 9 prospect.
                  6. Tony Giarratano, ss, Italy (Tigers)
                  The 23-year-old is the Tigers' No. 8 prospect.
                  7. Frederich Cepeda, of, Cuba
                  Cepeda, 25, has a fourth-outfielder profile because he has no above-average tool, but he showed a knack for getting big hits or making big plays. "You can't discount what's inside their heads and in their hearts," one scout said of Cuba's players.
                  8. Munenori Kawasaki, ss, Japan (Fukuoka)
                  The defense played by Asian teams impressed fans and scouts alike, and Kawasaki made just 11 errors in 133 games in 2004 for the Hawks. He's an 80 runner (on the 20-to-80 scouting scale) and handles the bat, though he lacks power.
                  9. Shairon Martis, rhp, Netherlands (Giants)
                  Martis showed solid-average stuff and above-average pitchability for a teenager in his seven-inning no-hitter against Panama. A scout who saw it cautioned that Panama played with little energy in the game.
                  10. Yadier Pedroso, rhp, Cuba
                  The 6-foot-1, 185-pound 19-year-old showed three average pitches, including a true late-breaking curve that can be a strikeout pitch.
