Go White Sox, Fu*K Castro

Some of the most exciting baseball I have ever seen, and it's coming from a Chicago team! Two of the White Sox pitchers, Orlando Hernandez and Jose Contreras defected from Cuba. During the game 1 broadcast, announcer Joe Buck mentioned that Contreras' name is not allowed to be spoken in Cuba, and that a few of his relatives still in Cuba are riding on horseback out to a shack in a remote section of the island to listen to the sattelite feed of the broadcast. It made me wonder how many people unfortunate enough to be riding a horse Saturday night in Cuba turned up dead or not at all.

Here is their story, and yet another reason to cheer for the White Sox.
