DayŠn Viciedo has been compared to Manny Ramirez. I wonder if Kenny would consider another Cuban player. He can play 3rd,SS,OF, and Pitcher. He has been clocked at more then 90MPH.

Third Base, you say? We'll have an opening there next year...

I think having a fastball over 90 is almost a requirement for a MLB pitcher with a few exceptions of course.

He has the same agent as Alexei and Contreras too.

Viciedo at SS and Alexei at 2B?

If he can play 3rd with an arm like that Josh Fields would most likely move to the DH spot and Thome gets the team optioned declined. This would make the team a whole lot younger and would have players locked in for many years.

I hope the Sox try and get him to be our new 3B. Fields can be the DH of the future.

He's only 18? I'm guessing he doesn't start in the majors.

Why not? If there's a great player out there, go get him.

I would love it if the Sox could develop a Cuban talent "pipeline."

In the photo of him next to the linked story, he's wearing a blue cap with a red letter "C." I hope that the "C" stands for "Cuba," not "Cubs."

I think that's a Cuba cap.

Sounds like he'll be subject to the draft and might not be able to become a free agent.

what about Josh Fields?

Carlos Lee and Paul Konerko were at one time third basemen in the minors, too.

I might be wrong but I believe they each have started a game for the Sox at 3B in the majors.

Konerko started a couple of games at 3B for the Sox in 2000, but El Caballo never did. Aside from LF, the only other position he played in the field for the Sox was 1B.

When did Lee play first base? I'm sure he did, but what year would it have been? And I believe that Konerko was our opening day third baseman in 1999 wasn't he?

In 2000 Konerko started seven games at third. He was not the pening day starter. His last start at third was April 15, of 2000.
