It is being reported on the Internet that Cuban slugger Jose Dariel Abreu has left the island. Because this "report" is coming from El Nuevo Herald, which hates Cuba with a passion because they are fanatical capitalists, I would be a little skeptical, but knowing full well how little Cuba pays its baseball players, I would not be surprised if it true.
It is very sad when Cubans have to leave the country to chase $$$$$$$ in the U.S.
It is also very doubtful that Cuba will ever again win an international baseball tournament, but I will still root for them.
