The Cuban National Baseball Series

The Industriales Swept the Finals and left the Oranges of Villa CLara in the 4th game which was in Villa Clara. all four were dreat games, i was able to listen to them on Radio Rebelede, although it was clear the Oranges were outclassed by the Blues(or Leones-Lions) as they are sometimes also called, and even though none of the games were close, their was some great ball playing.

not to mention Livian hernadez as well as Contreas. who is just over the hill and that is one reason he went back to the minors. He can't and want be able to keep up with the Major League guys anymore than maybe 1 year if that.

Most of the MLB players who have played against or watched the Cubans players have publicly stated that, once the embargo is lifted, Cuba will have more players in MLB than the DR and PR combined. They're that good.

actually the world is seeing their talents right now only the US isn't allowed to watch Cuban Sports, Just because of the society they live in does not make them any less talented.
