Another Bunk Defection

El Nacional´s report earlier this week that Yulieski Gourriel and Eduardo Paret defected in Cartagena now appears to be 100% fabricated.  That´s right, the captain of Cuba´s national team is safe and sound at his home in Havana, according to a considerably more reputable Dominican newspaper.

Today´s print edition of the Listin Diario featured a blurb in which Paret said that he was praying for Fidel Castro´s recuperation.

The wire report was filed from Havana.

Of course, if Castro kicks the bucket and Cuba begins the process of Democratic reform, an opening of the flood gates could very well occur.  Somehow I doubt we´ll be seeing Major League Baseball setting up a CSL anytime soon, though.
