|2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)||What are your thoughts on Rusney Castillo? I tempered my expectations for Cespedes…he was great. I thought no way could Puig be as good…he was better. I expected Abreu to struggle at least with his AVG…he’s a stud. I keep wanting to temper my expectations with Castillo, but why should I? I know he’s not a Puig or Abreu type talent, but could he be very, very good?|

|I think he can be good, but the honest answer is I don't know anything you don't know. You've highlighted the successful Cuban imports from recent years but it's important to remember that a lot of guys come over who we don't notice as much and forget about when they fail. Remember Leslie Anderson? (Craig Goldstein)|
|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. |

|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)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
