US and Cuba to restore relations. Could Cuban players now be up for grabs?


Recommended Posts

It was speculated on MLB Network that it could even mean a minor league franchise in Cuba.

 

As for normalization of relations and Cuban players being considered the same way as other Latin American ballplayers, it's been a long time coming. The embargo hasn't really served any real purpose for quite some time now.

Hope it doesn't ruin the cigars.

 

Within the cigar community, there is concern that this will happen. With a lot of pent-up demand in the US, if the market were suddenly wide open to Cuban cigar manufacturers, there is a danger that production will be increased to the point that quality will suffer. The tobacco might not be aged as well, rolling would take place more quickly, etc.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Hopefully the pride of craftsmanship will outweigh the capital incentives.
