We're just going to leave Angel Hernandez there when everyone flies back, right? #MLBinCuba

Adam Rubin:

Cuban defector Yulieski Gourriel has been declared a free agent by MLB. Still, the Post's Joel Sherman is skeptical the Mets will pursue Gourriel. Sherman writes: "Though they traded for and ultimately signed [Yoenis] Cespedes as a free agent once in the States, the Mets pretty much have shunned the expensive Cuban international market. Two club sources said they would be surprised if that changed, but would not definitively rule out Gourriel." Sherman expects the Yankees to be involved.

just putting this here for reference even tho the '16 tour is next week (a big change from February, tho many of the destinations are the same as in 2004 when i went). A boutique tour won't be anything like this (or as cheap) a few years from now)...
