Default Pretty Big International News ( Jose dariel Abreu)

Apparently he has escaped Cuba. He's a big time prospect and only 26 and at a position of need. With all the money we got rid of and Hahn talking about expanding internationally is this a potential place for him?

If the Sox think he's worth it then they should spend the money because it should be there. They're going to free around $50 mil from next year budget

Yes, please. I'd love for them to make a serious run at him.

MLB Trade Rumors linked to a Jonah Keri article about him from last year. Keri tweeted out a link to a more detailed Ben Badler piece from today:

You're just full of ideas on what the Sox should do aren't you?

Maybe you should buy the team or apply to be GM.

I agree, especially when it has already been talked about a bit in the talking baseball thread.

The nerve of some people to express ideas about the Sox on a White Sox discussion board! They should either get a job with the team or shut up.

The best player in the world not in the Majors and a potential MVP Candidate who is still in his prime. He's going to get a lot of money.

There's talking about the team and there's continuing to post the Sox should do this or hire him or sign them.

The Sox should stand pat and do nothing.
