Aroldis Chapman defects from Cuba

Could be someone to keep an eye on. Now, we just need Yulieski Gourriel to defect as he'd be an immediate impact player.

yes this is very interesting and a nice surprise- FB its 100, and has good experience playing in Cuba. I read that player needs to take home in another country for several months before he can become a FA- can anyone confirm that

i believe a player needs to gain residence in another country but it'll happen and he'll be a FA prior to the 2010 season. That would mean 3 Cubans defectors will be on the market for next season.
