The Chicago WhiteSox have definitely been on the vanguard of Cuban baseball culture and reaped the rewards on the field. Their fanbase has been showing increasing interest in CubaDugout’s foray into Cuba and the information on potential players there in. I recently joined CrossTown CrossTalk podcast to discuss the Pale Hose and all things Cuban baseball.
You can watch the full video interview via their Youtube page. The full video is embedded above. Or if you prefer the audio only version is available to listen below or wherever great podcasts are found. Check out CrossTown CrossTalk via the Barroom Network and follow them on Twitter.
A few topics we cover include the current crop of Cuban stars that are key cogs for the White Sox in the Windy City. Check out some of my profile videos on stars such as José Abreu, Luis Robert and Yoan Moncada, links below.
We also discuss the young crop of Cuban prospects in the pipeline. What does the future hold for Yoelkis Céspedes and Oscar Colas? I also focus on these players in profile videos from my youtube catalogue. Check out my conversation with CrossTown CrossTalk and leave a comment on whether my projections will be accurate.
The White Sox are entering into win now mode and part of that is driven by their current crop of Cuban stars. The Cubans in their pipeline could also be key in pushing them over the top. The future is bright for the Pale Hose and much of this optimism is driven by stars that once plied their craft in Cuba’s top league.
