DateQuestionAnswer
2010-03-24 11:00:00 (link to chat)What happens first, JJ Ruiz signs with a team or Leslie Anderson reporting to Rays camp/Extended Spring Training from Mexico? Also, I know Clay Davenport's translations of Anderson's stats don't spell for a successful career, however everybody that I've talked to that know about Latin American Int'l baseball say that Anderson has more clear-cut future than Ruiz and feel he will be more successful than him.
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Ok, I know this is not your question this time around, but I just heard confirmation for your point that Danny Duffy is taking a leave from baseball. That is pretty surprising.

As for those two guys, I really don't have the kind of knowledge of Cuban baseball to say for sure. There are just so many variables and so much of the information is unknown, I would trust the scouts who have seen the players more than the translations. (Tommy Bennett)
