Yulieski Gourriel, viewed by some as the last great player in Cuba, has defected with his younger brother, Lourdes. The guy is just 31, plays 3B and 2B, hits for average and power, and he wants to be a teammate of Alex Rodriguez. Yeah, his longtime dream has been to play for the New York Yankees.
This should be great news. This should have our owner donning his kinky boots.
So why do we all feel sick?
