Your Saturday Morning Quick Refresher on Yoan Moncada

A bit of “news” broke on Thursday night that the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox were the “heavy favorites” to sign Cuban defecting infielder Yoan Moncada. I say this is “news” because he has yet to be unblocked by the US government and cannot be signed by major league teams yet so to name a team or two the favorite right now seems to be a bit premature, don’t you think. Also it’s not news in my opinion, it’s more stating the obvious, as these two teams along with 28 others will at least be involved in the discussions for Moncada. Anyway, I could rant and rave all day about the media and insiders recycle the same garbage and attach names like the Yankees to attract clicks but I am here to give a refresher course on Moncada as the signing draws closer.

We went back in the Greedy Pinstripes archive to bring you these two articles about Moncada and what he could potentially bring to New York, or any team. Moncada is being donned as a franchise changing player and a must have for most teams so expect the bidding to get expensive, hot and heavy.
