Will Obama let Cuba’s top baseball player  Yulieski Gourriel join the Yankees?nypost.com/2015/05/20/will-obama-let-cub...


My take:


Why Obama would have anything to do with Yulieski Gourriel? He doesn´t know didly about baseball. I remember when he was elected president since he was a Senator from Chicago before he landed in the White House he was asked  which Chicago Team he preferred, he responded that he didn´t want to say because both were good team, then he was asked could he name his r favorite player? he repeated the same. The reason he didn´t name a player it is because he has no clue about baseball players he is a basketball fan and even then he didn't finish near the top with his basketball bracket predictions were made public. ESPN Carried that. Obama should have checked with Mitt Romney.


Does anyone remember when Obama was invited to throw the first pitch at a game? Well I do, he ha no idea.  George Bush was invited to throw the first pitch at Yankee Stadium when baseball resumed after 9/11.


Here is a link, you can compare both

Lately the Yanks have shown zero interests on Cuban players that have arrived, players were outstanding: Cespedes, Puig, Chapman, Abreu, just to name a few. Abreu could have been signed to replace Jeter at SS. He turned out to be an excellent player for the White Sox and he was awarded Rookie of the year, but the H brothers and Cashman preferred to bring DiDi, cheaper and no good. I don´t think they will  even check on Gourriel,  the Media will say they are interested or they are the front runner,et all, we have heard this before.


Couple of years ago it was said that Fidel Castro was going to allow Cuban players to come and play in the US but they had to return when the season was over and he would take 80% of what they made. I am of the belief that if Yulieski is smart wants to play in the Big Leagues he will defect.

I'm willing to trade Obama to Cuber for Yukuleli Farvegnugen and I'll even throw in Jinah and his useless bologna pants.

Isn't it MLB's decision? The fact is, there may be an international draft soon.
