My least-favorite ballclub owner

Fidel Castro has an interesting take on defections.

"They have taken away a lot of the best pitchers, offering them millions of dollars," he added, referring to Cuban players who left for big-paying jobs in the major leagues.

Gosh, somehow all the other countries whose players get paid big bucks in the major leagues are still proud to wear their countries' names on their uniforms. Maybe if Castro says he's really, really sorry for treating his players like prisoners, then Jose Contreras and Orlando Hernandez might play for his team. Not likely.
