Uno de los hombres que sacó a Puig de Cuba se declaró culpable

Acusado Gilberto Suarez/
cafefuerte.com
Un empresario del sur de Florida se declararó culpable por las acusaciones de ayudar a financiar el contrabando del estelar pelotero de los Dodgers de Los Ángeles, Yasiel Puig, fuera de Cuba.
El juez de distrito de Estados Unidos, Robert Scola, fijó el martes una audiencia de declaración de culpabilidad para Gilberto Suárez, de 40 años, quien previamente se había declarado inocente del cargo de contrabando y conspiración. La pena máxima para este delito conlleva una sentencia a 10 años en prisión.
La sentencia se dará a conocer el próximo 6 de marzo.
Los investigadores dicen que Suárez fue uno de los contrabandistas, ubicados en Miami, que en 2012 ayudaron a Puig a salir en una embarcación desde Cuba hacia México. Los contrabandistas iban a recibir una porción del contrato que firmaría más tarde Puig con los Dodgers por siete campañas y $42 millones.
Se trata de la primera vez que la Fiscalía menciona directamente el nombre del pelotero cubano en la demanda junto al de Aledmys Díaz Serrano, campocorto de los Cardinales de St. Louis, quien jugó para las Naranjas de Villa Clara entre 2007 y 2012.
En la audencia se conoció que Suárez recibió $2.5 millones como pago por la operación.
Los fiscales quieren confiscar cualquier dinero que Puig haya pagado a Suárez por la firma de su contrato, además de una casa, un apartamento, un Porsche y un Mercedes Benz.

Orioles add another Cuban outfielder, Elier Leyva

The Orioles don't go in for the top of the market players coming out of Cuba, but they're always looking on the bargain rack. They added another such player on Monday, bringing 24-year-old outfielder Elier Leyva into the organization, according to a Baltimore Sun report.
Leyva is not an immediate candidate for the major league roster. The O's beat crew, providing information from the team, suggested that he is likely to begin at Frederick. He is said to be 6'2" and 180 pounds, with an above average arm and "projectable power from the right side." That does indeed sound exciting, although let's face it, if he was really all of that, he probably wouldn't have cost a mere $180,000 to sign.
This is not the first speculative Cuban outfielder signing for the team. Both Henry Urrutia and Dariel Alvarez came from there, with the O's hoping that once they got into the US and got into the routine here, they might show some greater potential than they could do in Cuban leagues. That hasn't paid off for them quite yet. It also hasn't cost them much, either. Urrutia and Alvarez both had bonuses in the $700,000 range. Leyva costs even less to bring into the fold.
Since Leyva is over the age of 23, he won't count against any of the rules for international signing bonuses, provided he's played at least five seasons of professional baseball in Cuba.
If you are currently reading this article from a location where you can view Youtube videos, you really need to look at this hype video from last year, which is the same guy, as far as I can tell. You don't need to watch it because it's impressive. Rather, it's just really funny that it's so serious. There is also this Spanish-language ESPN Deportes article from last May talking about an Elier Leyva, 23, who had just become a free agent.
There is probably a story about why he went from eligible to sign last year with numerous teams interested to only signing for such a modest amount with the Orioles now. Maybe someone will even find out the story. The hype video lists him as 205 lbs, which is very different from 180. Then again, it was a hype video. Or maybe it's not even the same guy! But the Orioles definitely got some guy with that name.
Not too many years ago, the Orioles were the only organization that didn't have even a single Latin-born player on their High-A team. That will not be the case next year. Best of luck to Leyva in climbing up the ranks towards the majors.

Braves sign Cuban outfielder Dian Toscano

This is The Stew's running list of trades and signings that happen during baseball's Winter Meetings. We'll keep updating this post as the news happens. For more chatter and rumors, be sure to check out our Winter Meetings tracker.
MONDAY
Braves sign Cuban outfielder Dian Toscano
The Atlanta Braves added another outfielder to their roster in Dian Toscano, a 25-year-old international free agent from Cuba who could be a left field option down the road. Toscano isn't one of the big-name Cuban imports — i.e., he's not the Yasmany Tomas consolulation prize.
Ben Badler at Baseball America has more on Toscano:
Toscano, who is around 5-foot-10, 200 pounds, is a lefthanded hitter with good bat control and strike-zone awareness. He never played on the Cuban national team, so he wasn’t a player scouts saw much of before he left the island.
Playing for Villa Clara in Serie Nacional, Toscano batted .356/.400/.452 in 86 plate appearances with eight walks and eight strikeouts in 2012-13, his last season in Cuba. The year before, Toscano hit .287/.438/.380 with 35 walks and 16 strikeouts. He hit just three home runs that year and never showed much power in Cuba, though he’s in significantly better shape and has increased his strength since leaving Cuba.
BLS Take: Naturally, when you hear "Cuban outfielder" these days, excitement and intrigue are not reactions, but Toscano doesn't have nearly as much hype as the high-profile Cubans we've seen land in MLB the last few years. As Badler writes, less is known about Toscano because he didn't play on the Cuban national team, so there's a chance the Braves found a diamond in the rough. But based on what we know, you shouldn't expect Toscano to be an Opening Day starter or anything.

Yoan Moncada: Is It Now Legal for Cuban Ballplayers to Leave Their Country and Join the Major Leagues?

Baseball’s next great Cuban prospect, Yoan Moncada, is currently cooling his heels in Guatemala waiting to be cleared by the U.S. government’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. Once he does get that clearance, Moncada can start receiving offers from major-league teams, which are expected to range between $30 and $40 million.
What the 19-year-old switch-hitter can do behind the plate or at third base is less intriguing than how he got out of Cuba. Dozens of the nation’s baseball stars, from Orlando Hernandez to Yasiel Puig have made their way to America, often via harrowing escapes involving dangerous boat rides and predatory human traffickers. Even when the escape is less dramatic—pitcher Aroldis Chapman, now of the Cincinnati Reds, simply walked out of his hotel room in the Netherlands where the Cuban national team was participating in the World Baseball Classic—defection usually means a player is permanently exiled from homeland and family.
Moncada, by contrast, seems to have just showed up. Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reports that “he did so on what his handlers say is a legal Cuban passport, meaning the government OK’d his departure, something never before done for a high-level ballplayer.” Kiley McDaniel of FanGraphs adds:
I was told by Moncada’s agent last week that he was allowed by the Cuban government to leave the country, that Moncada has a Cuban passport and can fly back to the country whenever he wants to. I haven’t been able to formally confirm this, but there’s no reason for the agent to lie about it, and multiple high-ranking club executives told me this is how they understand the situation at this point as well.
If true, this represents a recent change in policy. As recently as last June, Yasmany Tomas escaped to Haiti under circumstances that, according to MLB.com, “remain mysterious.” Tomas has since signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
So, what’s going on here? In 2012, as part of a package of liberalizing reforms, Raul Castro’s government eased travel restrictions for the country’s citizens. Previously, to travel abroad Cubans had needed an exit visa from the government and an invitation from someone in the destination country. Under the new system, only a passport is required.
In September 2013, Cuba also dropped its longstanding policy prohibiting baseball players from signing with professional teams. The era of legally sanctioned Cuban pro ballplayers has already begun in other countries. In April, outfielder Frederich Cepeda signed with the Yoimuri Giants of Japan, becoming the first player to take advantage of the new rules. He will get to keep 80 percent of his $1.5 million earnings. That’s not quite Yankees money, but it’s a lot more than the $100 to $450 a month he would earn in Cuba, and he’ll get to come back home to see his family at the end of the season.
The U.S. embargo still makes the journey to the big show difficult for Cubans, and even if the Castro regime has turned a blind eye to Moncada’s actions so far, it’s unlikely that he’ll still be welcome back home after he signs to an American team. But with Cuba gradually loosening its restrictions and support for the embargo dropping in the U.S., it’s probably only a matter of time before the gates open entirely.

Yankees interested in hard-throwing Cuban Yoan Lopez?

cronodeportesonline.com
The Yankees are interested in 21-year-old Cuban prospect whose fastball runs up to 100 mph, according to a report from MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez.
Yoan Lopez, a righty, recently held a showcase for scouts in the Dominican Republic and has another one planned, and the Yankees are among at least three teams who have “expressed strong interest” in him,” the report said.
From the report:
 
As for Lopez, he throws a cut-fastball, a change, a curve and a slider, but is best known for a fastball that hovers in the 93-to-95 MPH range. His fastball has been clocked at 100 MPH three times since he began working out for teams. Back in Cuba, Lopez played three seasons for Isla de la Juventud in Cuba’s Serie Nacional, the island’s top league. He sported a 3.12 ERA with 28 strikeouts and 11 walks in 49 innings in his final season before defecting from Cuba.
The Yankees signed 10 of Baseball America’s top 30 international prospects during the 2014-2015 signing period. The Giants and Diamondbacks have also shown interest in Lopez, the report said.

Was Castro Regime Complicit in Human Trafficking Ring?

Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin
Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin
14-Plus Years For Cuban Ballplayer Smuggler
By Curt Anderson, AP Legal Affairs Writer
MIAMI — The convicted ringleader of a smuggling organization that brought more than 1,000 Cubans into the U.S., some of them baseball players including Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin, was sentenced Monday to more than 14 years in federal prison.
U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard rejected a request for leniency by Eliezer Lazo, whom she noted was paid $22,000 a month through the scheme — not counting the percentages of any professional baseball contracts the players signed. Prosecutors say Martin paid the Lazo group $1.2 million after signing with the Rangers in 2011.
"That's a lot of money," Lenard said.
Lazo, 41, will begin serving the sentence after finishing an unrelated five-year prison term for money laundering in a Medicare fraud case. In the smuggling case, he pleaded guilty in August to extortion conspiracy.
The Lazo organization smuggled Cubans by boat to Mexico for $10,000 each, more for the baseball players, according to court documents. They would then usually travel to the U.S. border crossing at Laredo, Texas, and ask to be permitted to stay in the U.S.
Under the U.S. "wet foot, dry foot" policy, Cubans who reach dry land in the U.S. are generally allowed to remain while those intercepted at sea are returned to the communist island. Lazo's attorney, William Clay, said many of Lazo's customers were overjoyed to make it to the U.S. despite the costs.
"They had gotten what they bargained for," Clay said.
But Assistant U.S. Attorney Ron Davidson said migrants who couldn't pay were held for ransom by armed guards, often threatened and sometimes beaten. Although Lazo himself did not participate in any violence, Davidson said he was well aware it was going on.
"This man is not a freedom fighter," Davidson said.
The case also provided a glimpse into how Mexican drug cartels get their cut of the migrant smuggling business. Court documents show that in the Cancun area, the Zetas cartel charges Cuban smugglers $10,000 per boat and up to $3,000 per migrant to allow them to pass through their territory and assist in paying bribes to local officials.
No evidence surfaced in the case that Martin or any of the other valuable Cuban ballplayers were mistreated. Only Martin has been identified by name in the Lazo case, but other Cuban stars such as Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig have also been smuggled through Mexico.

Details about Jose Abreu's defection from Cuba emerge

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer
Every few weeks or so, we hear news that another player has defected from Cuba in hopes of making it big in MLB. It happens so often nowadays that these reports are easy to overlook. For every Yasiel Puig or Yoenis Cespedes, there are several players who flame out in the minors.
Most defection stories involve sneaking out of Cuba at night, often on a small boat or raft. Some, like Puig and Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez, had to make numerous attempts to leave the island before being successful. In Puig's case, he left the country with the help of smugglers who eventually demanded a ransom.
The details of White Sox slugger Jose Abreu's escape from Cuba have remained a mystery until now. Through a series of interviews, Jared Hopkins of the Chicago Tribune was able to piece together Abreu's defection story. It appears he made it out with his brother-in-law on his first attempt, leaving his wife, son and family behind.
Here are some snippets from Hopkins' story:
"I've heard Abreu's story, and I thought mine was crazy," said teammate and fellow Cuban native Adrian Nieto, who came to the U.S. on a raft with his family when he was 4.
"Him being on a little boat with just two motors and these two huge ships got in between them. He said the waves were 15 feet high and he thought they were going to drown. It's crazy."
...
Abreu told the Tribune he decided during last year's World Baseball Classic to defect.
"I realized I could go elsewhere with baseball," he said in Spanish. "Everyone knows we're here playing in the world's best baseball league. The differences [with Cuban baseball] include the level of professionalism among players here."
...
When Abreu reached the Dominican Republic, he lived in Santo Domingo, the nation's capital, and Santiago, about two hours north, said Amauri Morel, who works at Praver Shapiro Sports Management. Morel, based in the Dominican, said he provided "client services" to Abreu -- helping with housing, for example -- and brought the slugger to train at various parks and stadiums.
The White Sox signed Abreu to a six-year, $68 million contract last offseason, which was a record for an international player at the time. He bought a modest house in Miami after signing the deal, where his parents and sister now live. It's unclear if Abreu's wife and son are still in Cuba.
Abreu did not share any details of his defection with the White Sox before signing his contract. Team president Kenny Williams told Hopkins that signing Abreu was "just like any other acquisition ... You try to get as much information as to the makeup of the player, mentally, emotionally. His makeup on the field -- Is he a leader? Is he a respectful-type person? Is he a flashy-type person? How does he fit into the team?"
Hopkins' article is quite long but well worth the read. It covers some more details about Abreu's life in Cuba as well as his transition to the United States. He is hesitant to discuss his defection but did say he was thankful for his newfound freedom. "In Cuba, people don't attain that. I'm thankful for my life, but it's something I've never experienced, and I'm thankful for everything."

How did Jose Abreu get from Cuba to Chicago? Details remain a mystery


Jose Abreu's harrowing journey to the White Sox began last year on a small boat on the shores of Cuba.
"I've heard Abreu's story, and I thought mine was crazy," said his teammate and fellow Cuban native Adrian Nieto, who came to the U.S. on a raft with his family when he was 4. "Him being on a little boat with just two motors and these two huge ships got in between them. He said the waves were 15 feet high and he thought they were going to drown. It's crazy."
Abreu, the front-runner to win the American League Rookie of the Year award Monday, became the 17th Cuban player for the Sox, building on a legacy rooted in the legendary Minnie Minoso. Nine Cuban-born players, including the Cubs' Jorge Soler, made their major league debuts this season. Over the past 50 years, at least five dozen Cubans have reached the majors with scores more playing in the minors.
While Cuba remains a wellspring of baseball talent, its players don't leave the country freely. The U.S. government imposed a commercial trade embargo on Cuba more than five decades ago, and the Communist government there prohibits players from signing with major league teams.
But the lure of freedom and baseball dreams is strong, so young men are willing to take giant risks for themselves and, sometimes, for their families. Players sneak away from a team during a tournament in a foreign country — or, more treacherously, hire smugglers to ferry them off the island.
The recent wave of players can be linked to the rising financial payoff not just for players, but also for those who compose well-oiled smuggling rings: boat drivers, middlemen, government contacts and other colorful characters. At the same time, teams scout Cuban players better than ever, thanks in part to easy access on the Internet and added international competition such as the World Baseball Classic.
"At a minimum, 95 percent of the players leaving Cuba are being smuggled out," said Joe Kehoskie, a baseball consultant and former agent who represented Cuban players. "There is always a profit motive. I can't remember the last time a decent player was smuggled out of Cuba and there wasn't a smuggler there who expected payment."
In the case of Abreu, he disappeared from the tiny Caribbean island in August 2013.
About two months later, Abreu's imposing 6-foot-3, 255-pound frame emerged for a two-day showcase at the Yankees' academy in the Dominican Republic, wowing 200 baseball executives and scouts. By the end of October, he had signed the largest contract in White Sox history, a six-year deal worth $68 million.
The full details of Abreu's journey from Cuba to the United States remain a secret. Abreu and his agents declined to discuss his defection. His family provided few details.
A Tribune review of public records and interviews with more than three dozen people show that Cuban players often are smuggled out of their country through a clandestine network of shadowy figures. While Major League Baseball's $9 billion enterprise continues to see an influx of Cuban players, federal authorities have been investigating at least two Cuban smuggling rings. Five people have been indicted.
Often leaving the island in the dead of night, players promise the smugglers upward of 30 percent of their first contract for securely carrying them between countries. Through it all, players are aided and protected by handlers in Mexico, Haiti or the Dominican Republic loosely affiliated with American sports agents before arriving in the United States.
The most infamous defection reads like a Hollywood script. Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig and the group he escaped with were held in a motel in Mexico as smugglers negotiated a ransom. Gangsters threatened one of Puig's friends, and a smuggler turned up dead in Cancun.
The affair is spelled out in a $12 million federal court case a Cuban man filed against the 23-year-old Puig, saying he was falsely imprisoned in Cuba while the ballplayer plotted with Cuban authorities to leave.
"It seems to be a new ballgame out there," said Miami attorney Ben Daniel, a former federal prosecutor who oversaw human trafficking cases, including that of sports agent Gus Dominguez, who went to prison in 2007 for the offense. "It's much more cutthroat."
A baseball prodigy
Abreu, 27, was born in Mal Tiempo, a small neighborhood in Cruces, a city about 150 miles southeast of Havana. He was playing third base in Cuba's national school games by the time he was 7 and continued to excel.
In Cuba, players compete for their province. When Abreu was 16, he made his debut with Cienfuegos in Cuba's top league, the Cuba National Series. He played 10 seasons, setting records in the last four, and in 2012 was one RBI shy of winning the Triple Crown.
Unlike some Cuban players, Abreu was familiar to MLB scouts from his exposure on national teams. He compiled about 300 plate appearances outside his home country.
Abreu told the Tribune he decided during last year's World Baseball Classic to defect.

Second baseman Andy Ibanez leaves Cuba

According to Ben Badler, second baseman Andy Ibanez has left Cuba and will pursue a contract with a big league team. He still needs to establish residency in a foreign country, be unblocked by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and officially be declared a free agent by MLB before he can sign. That process will take several weeks and months.
Ibanez, 21, was the youngest player on Cuba’s roster during the World Baseball Classic last year, though he only received one at-bat in the tournament. He hit .267/.377/.435 with more walks (33) than strikeouts (28) in 280 plate appearances this past season after winning the Cuban league’s equivalent of the Gold Glove as a rookie two years ago.
Balder (subs. req’d) ranked Ibanez as the eighth best prospect left in Cuba last month — recently defected second baseman Jose Fernandez ranked third — and said he “doesn’t have any premium tools or star upside” while noting his value is in his athleticism and all-around game. He’s said to be a very good fielder and able to get the bat on the ball consistently.
It’s worth noting that because of his age and limited experience in Cuba, Ibanez will be subject to MLB’s international spending restrictions. The Yankees went bonkers this summer and way overspent their bonus pool, so they will not be allowed to sign a player to a bonus larger than $300,000 during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 signing periods. Something tells me $300,000 won’t cut it.
However, if Ibanez goes is declared a free agent before June 15th, he’d count against the current signing period. The Yankees are already way over their pool and would be able to offer him whatever they want without worrying about some spending cap. It took Rusney Castillo six months to be declared a free agent after defecting and Yasmany Tomas only four months. That doesn’t necessarily mean Ibanez will be eligible to sign before June 15th, but it looks like it has a good chance of happening.
Anyway, Ibanez is more like Jose Iglesias and Jorge Soler than Castillo and Jose Abreu because he’s so young. He’s not someone the Yankees could stick right into the lineup next year — Badler says Ibanez would likely have to start his career in High-A or Double-A. There’s no word if the Yankees or any other team have interest in him, but we’re still a few weeks away from that. Needless to say, teams are always looking for young and athletic middle infielders.

Cuban second baseman Andy Ibanez defects to sign with MLB team

HardballTalk

Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that 21-year-old second baseman Andy Ibanez has defected from Cuba with the intention of signing with an MLB team.
Ibanez was the youngest player on Cuba’s World Baseball Classic roster last year and Badler rates him as the No. 8 prospect still in Cuba. However, he’s unlikely to get a huge contract because as a 21-year-old with only three seasons of experience in Cuba he’s subject to the international spending limits that Cuban veterans are able to avoid.
Badler speculates that he’d likely begin his American career at Double-A and projects as a solid regular rather than a potential star.

El día en que los cubanos no se enteraron de la hazaña de Pito Abreu

ElFogonero
Hoy es un día vergonzoso para la prensa en Cuba. Todos los medios de la isla, sin excepción, han callado uno de los momentos cumbres del deporte  cubano: el cienfueguero José Dariel -Pito- Abreu, primera base de los Medias Blancas de Chicago, ha sido seleccionado Novato del Año de la Liga Americana.
La pelota es uno de los más importantes signos de identidad de los cubanos. Este deporte les sirvió, a finales del siglo XIX, para definirse a sí mismos y defender su derecho a la independencia. Durante toda la primera mitad del siglo XX, los cubanos que militaron en equipos de Grandes Ligas contribuyeron de una manera decisiva a construir la leyenda del béisbol latino.
Pocos meses después del triunfo revolucionario, Fidel Castro decidió suprimir el deporte profesional en Cuba. Esa medida empujó al destierro a decenas de atletas que hoy son parte esencial de la historia del béisbol cubano. Las consecuencias de esa autoritaria medida han llegado hasta nuestros días.
Los peloteros cubanos que desean probar suerte en el mejor béisbol del mundo, antes deben escapar de su país. Eso tuvo que hacer el primera base de Cienfuegos. Apenas un año después, se convirtió en el primer novato de la historia de Grandes Ligas en finalizar la temporada entre los primeros cinco lugares de su liga en jonrones (36), carreras impulsadas (107) y promedio de bateo (317).
Sus cuadrangulares, además, impusieron un récord en los Medias Blancas de Chicago para un novato, rompiendo la marca de 35 que impuso Ron Kittle en 1983. Pito Abreu tiene ahora la sexta mejor marca de jonrones de un novato en la historia de Grandes Ligas.
Justo hoy, en la sección de deportes del periódico Granma, aparece un reportaje sobre cinco basquetbolistas cubanos que hace dos años desertaron. Obviamente, es la historia de un fracaso. Ese es el modus operandi de un régimen mezquino, que se niega a reconocer cualquier logro de los emigrados cubanos en cualquier ámbito.
Ni siquiera Radio Ciudad del Mar, la emisora de Cienfuegos, mencionará el acontecimiento. Pero el futuro se encargará de enmendar esa penosa omisión. Ninguna de las noticias que aparecieron hoy en los periódicos cubanos será más importante que la hazaña de Pito Abreu.
Cuando ya nadie recuerde a ninguno de los que merecieron los titulares del 21 de octubre en Cuba, José Dariel Abreu seguirá siendo un héroe de todos los cubanos. Los signos de identidad no se archivan en una hemeroteca ni se deciden en un cuartel, eso es algo que permanece guardado en el orgullo de la gente.

Clama Cuba a EU por contrato de peloteros a traves del regimen

a traves de un articulo- "editorial" del periodista deportiva del granma oscar sanchez, el regimen cubano hace un desesperado llamado a estados unidos y en particular a la organizacion de las grandes ligas de beisbol, para que contraten a traves de la federacion cubana en manos del principito tony castro a los peloteros cubanos, tal como son los casos de algunos que juegan en mexico y japon. cuba no renuncia a la propiedad de todo lo que exista en la isla paraplejica, incluyendo los recursos humanos de cualquier tipo, sean medicos, oficiales de inteligencia, alfabetizadores o deportistas. todo es propiedad absoluta del clan biranico, representado en este caso por tony castro, quien a tiempo se construyo su propia parcela de poder y lucha por ampliarla, para convertirse en el agente exclusivo que represente a todos los peloteros cubanos que jueguen en ligas foraneas.

Escapa de Cuba el estelar pelotero Héctor Olivera

Café Fuerte
Hector-Olivera
Por Redacción CaféFuerte
El segunda base Héctor Olivera Amaro, figura estelar de la pelota cubana, escapó de la isla tras la ruta de sus compatriotas que triunfan hoy en Grandes Ligas.
Olivera, de 29 años, forma parte de una generación de jugadores que brilló en series nacionales y torneos internacionales durante la última década, y sus triunfos lo colocaron en la cúspide de los mejores deportistas cubanos en el 2010.
Muchos de sus coetáneos y ex compañeros en la selección nacional, como Aroldis Chapman, Yoenis Céspedes, Alexei Ramírez y José Dariel Abreu, integran hoy las nóminas de equipos de Grandes Ligas, favorecidos por millonarios contratos.
Según confirmaron a CaféFuerte fuentes vinculadas al pelotero, Olivera abandonó el país el fin de semana, presuntamente por vía marítima, aunque no especificaron el lugar de destino. En el viaje lo habría acompañado su padre, Héctor Olivera, quien fuera un recio bateador en el béisbol cubano de los años 70.
Sin debutar en la 54 Serie Nacional
“Lo que sabemos es que se fue”, dijo la fuente. “La noticia la conoce ya la Federación Cubana de Béisbol [FCB] y está en boca de los periodistas deportivos”.
De acuerdo con la información obtenida por CaféFuerte, Olivera no participó en los partidos de su equipo, Santiago de Cuba, frente a Guantánamo durante lunes y martes, al iniciarse la 54 serie Nacional de Béisbol. No se explicaron oficialmente las razones de su ausencia en la alineación, siendo uno de los pilares del conjunto santiaguero.
La historia deportiva de Olivera, uno de los mayores prospectos del béisbol cubano desde su aparición en lides juveniles, se vio accidentada por recientes lesiones que lo alejaron de los terrenos de béisbol por largas etapas.
Estuvo fuera de la serie nacional y de torneos internacionales entre el 2012 y 2013, a causa de  trombosis en el bíceps del brazo izquierdo. En el pasado campeonato nacional regresó a media máquina jugando segunda base y como bateador designado, y promedió para 316 con siete jonrones.
Futuro en otra parte
Su retorno a la alineación regular de Santiago de Cuba en la actual temporada era visto con grandes expectativas por la afición y los directivos beisboleros del país.
Pero el futuro, como todo parece indicar, no estaba calculado por Olivera para permanecer jugando en los torneos cubanos.
Olivera es un bateador que combina el tacto con el poder, con especial destreza en el corrido de las bases.
Debutó en series nacionales en el 2004, a los 18 años, luego de una brillante carrera en la categoría juvenil.
En ocho series nacionales compila para promedio de 322, con 164 dobles, 81 jonrones y 414 carreras impulsadas.
Integró los equipos Cuba que alcanzaron medallas de plata en los Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing 2008, y la Copa Mundial del 2009. Fue integrante de la selección cubana que participó en el II Clásico  Mundial del 2009.
En la XVII Copa Intercontinental. de Béisbol del 2010, en Taipei de China, fue seleccionado como el Jugador Más Valioso del torneo, tras batear para promedio de 593. Ese año fue elegido entre los 10 Mejores Deportistas en Cuba.

La guaperia tardia de Yasiel Puig

como se aprecia en el video, puig reacciona airadamente solo despues que el arbitro central se encamina al monticulo a llamarle la atencion al lanzador de los gigantes de san francisco madison bumgarner y no inmediatamente despues de recibir el pelotazo como suele ocurrir. el pelotazo bajo y adentro, no fue por demas intencional, en cuyo caso bumbarner le hubiera tirado alto y pegado o directamente a la cabeza. afortunadamente no paso a mayores pues pudo haberse generado una rina tumultaria entre los dos equipos gracias a la guaperia barata de mr. puig.

Cuban Baseball Players Being Interviewed by Feds

On Tuesday it was reported that federal authorities in the United States have been interviewing Cuban baseball players in the MLB to obtain more information about alleged smuggling rings that have brought a number of them to the United States.
A man by the name of Gilberto Suarez was charged for his alleged role in smuggling Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig out of Cuba and into the U.S. The 40-year-old pleaded not guilty to a charge of alien smuggling conspiracy last week and investigators are seeking millions of dollars in cash and purchases that Suarez allegedly received from Puig's $42 million contract.
Court documents also indicated back in April that Puig, and a Cuban boxer who was also smuggled to the U.S. during the same operation, have been receiving death threats from their alleged smugglers because of unpaid debts. Suarez and others allegedly financed the $400,000 smuggling trip, which took Puig and the boxer, Yunior Despaigne, by boat to Isla Mujeres near Cancun, Mexico. The two were then taken to Mexico City by ferry and granted residency by the Mexican government. Puig was then soon signed to a $42 million contract by the Los Angeles Dodgers, of which he reportedly owes 20% to both the Cuban- and Mexican-based smugglers.
According to sources, Puig has been interviewed on several occasions and is fully cooperating with federal authorities throughout the investigation. The feds are looking to solve the Suarez case, which almost mirrors that of Eliezer Lazo. The 41-year-old Lazo pleaded guilty in August to U.S. extortion charges involving the smuggling of more than 1,000 Cubans that netted him $1.5 million, according to assistant U.S. Attorney Ron Davidson. His smuggling venture is believed to have included Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin.
In the documents for Suarez's case, Puig is believed to be the person who is referred to as "Y.P." and there are two others - "M.A.G." and "A.D." - that investigators are seeking out to find out what they know. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Aledmys Diaz are two other MLB players who are believed to be paying smugglers a cut of their contract, as it was discovered Puig was doing when "at least one person affiliated with the Mexican-based smugglers who initially got Puig out of Cuba showed up at the Dodgers' team hotel and demanded Puig pay the money they felt they were still owed," ESPN reported back in April.
Both the U.S. and Cuban governments are seeking out these smugglers and are recruiting baseball players to become informants regarding the subject. Secret police in Cuba are believed to be watching the Cuban players within their country to obtain information about the smugglers, while U.S. officials are calling MLB teams to speak with any Cuban players on their rosters.

Cuban slugger Yasmani Tomas to command $100 million?

According to one team’s international scout, the latest Cuban slugger could command as much as $100 million. The scout said Tomas has gotten himself in shape and if he performs well at his showcase later in the month, the money will get “really high.” Tomas is susceptible to breaking stuff. His legal documentation has just about cleared.
Cafardo says the Phillies “could go hard on him” but the Red Sox and “several other teams” have interest. Tomas defected from Cuba in June and was cleared for employment last week by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. The big-bodied corner outfielder batted .301/.333/.580 with 16 homers in 69 games as a 20-year-old in Cuba’s Serie Nacional back in 2011 and was a standout in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
Rusney Castillo’s recent seven-year, $72.5 million pact with the Boston Red Sox is the current record for a Cuban signee. Jose Abreu got a six-year, $68 million contract from the Chicago White Sox last October and Yasiel Puig received a seven-year, $42 million deal from the Los Angels Dodgers in June 2012.

El lanzador Diosdany Castillo escapa de Cuba y comienza preparación en México

DiosdanyCastillo-display
Por Wilfredo Cancio Isla
El lanzador cubano Diosdany Castillo Vergel logró escapar de la isla y se encuentra actualmente entrenando en México con el sueño de jugar en Grandes Ligas, confirmaron a CaféFuerte fuentes allegadas al pelotero.
Castillo, de 27 años, abandonó Cuba en una operación marítima, a mediados de agosto. En un anterior intento de fuga este verano fue capturado y separado indefinidamente del equipo Villa Clara  y de la preselección nacional por “indisciplina grave”, el pasado julio.
“Diosdany es otro más que huye del agobio y la fatiga revolucionaria, acosado por un episodio de delación sin precedentes”, dijo este jueves Orlando Chinea, entrenador de béisbol, quien se encuentra en México en la preparación del lanzador.
Chinea, un veterano preparador de lanzadores que forjó la carrera del as derecho José Fernández, dijo que se trabajará con Castillo en ajustes y potenciación de su talento como pitcher de relevo por un período de tres semanas en una zona del norte de México, y ratificó que el plan es que su discípulo consiga un contrato profesional con un equipo de Grandes Ligas.
Cualidades excepcionales de relevista
“Es un lanzador que ha potenciado en grado superlativo sus cualidades de relevista… algo increíble”, explicó Chinea. “Muy inteligente y con capacidades mentales motoras abiertas a los nuevos ajustes técnicos del béisbol profesional, le auguro un tremendo futuro”.
Pero además del amor por la pelota, Chinea comparte con el lanzador su origen villaclareño. Castillo es natural de Camajuaní; Chinea es de Santa Clara y estuvo vinculado a la preparación de los equipos de ese territorio durante décadas, antes de su separación como entrenador de la selección nacional y su fuga en una embaracación a Estados Unidos, en el 2005.
“Te diría que es un genuino representante del guajiro cubano con talento y picardía para lanzar”. comentó Chinea, quien dirige una academia de pitcheo en Tampa. “Se cansó de vivir en la mentira, los jugadores saben muy bien que la apertura en el campo del béisbol es otro truco del gobierno de los Castro y no creen en nada… optan por escapar a como sea”.
Castillo forma parte de la oleada de peloteros cubanos que han abandonado la isla, por diferentes caminos y opciones migratorias, con el propósito de agenciarse unc contrato en Grandes Ligas.
Excluido y sancionado
Lanzador derecho de notable control y velocidad consistente por encima de las 90 millas, Castillo se destacó en la pelota cubana como un eficaz relevista. Debutó con Villa Clara en la 46 Serie Nacional, en el 2007, y en siete campeonatos trabajó en 194 juegos (193 de relevo), con balance de 23-15, 27 salvamentos y promedio de efectividad de 3.48. En 346 innings lanzados, ponchó a 117 rivales y concedió 110 boletos.
Su desempeño lo llevó a integrar el equipo Cuba que participó en el III Clásico Mundial de Béisbol 2013 y con el equipo Villa Clara -campeón nacional- intervino en la 56 Serie del Caribe en Isla Margarita, Venezuela, el pasado febrero.
Pero a finales de junio, las autoridades de la Federación Cubana de Béisbol (FCB) lo dejaron fuera de la preselección nacional junto a otros cinco jóvenes prospectos a causa de intentos de salida ilegal del país, entre ellos su compañero de staff en Villa Clara, el zurdo  Yasmani Hernández Romero.
La frustrada salida de Castillo y Hernández se habría producido por un punto de la costa de Pinar del Río, el pasado 22 de junio.
Fugas villaclareñas
La Comisión Provincial de Béisbol de Villa Clara ratificó la sanción y suspendió indefinidamente a ambos lanzadores, quienes son amigos y compartían habitación durante la temporada de la Serie Nacional.
Con sus ausencias, el cuerpo de lanzadores de Villa Clara para la venidera Serie Nacional queda completamente debilitado. Otro de los puntales del equipo villaclareño en años recientes, el zurdo Misael Siverio abandonó el equipo Cuba tras su llegada a Estados Unidos en julio del 2013, poco antes de iniciar un tope amistoso con  colegiales norteamericanos.
En una entrevista reciente con el periódico provincial Vanguardia, el entrenador de pitcheo de Cilla Clara, Roidel Enríquez, pronosticó que “va a ser un año difícil” ante el desmantelamiento del staff de lanzadores, que ahora solo dependerá del astro Freddy Asiel Alvárez y el porte de los jóvenes prospectos.
Otro de los lanzadores más prometedores de Villa Clara, Yoandi Fernández, conocido como Cancaleca, está también fuera de los entrenamientos de la preselección villaclareña.

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Reverendo Martin Niemöller

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
