THAT YULIESKI GOURRIEL STORY LINGERS...
A while back we wrote about how Cuban 'sensation' (it's in quotes because they all are touted that way) was very interested in playing for the New York Yankees on day. We wrote several pieces about this kid. My favorite came this past April. Read THIS CUBAN STAR WANTS TO PLAY WITH ALEX RODRIGUEZ. Now Brendan Kuty of NJ.com decided to get Yankee fans even more excited.
Kuty writes: "The next Cuban superstar expected nab a multi-million dollar big-league contract would "love" to play for the Yankees and recently peppered Aroldis Chapman with questions about wearing pinstripes, the closer told NJ Advance Media on Thursday.
Yulieski Gourriel's favorite team is the Yankees, his favorite player is Alex Rodriguez and the 31-year-old third baseman "would be super happy" to become a Yankee, Chapman said via a translator."
This is all fine and good but the Yankees are saving every dollar for the day Bryce Harper becomes a free agent. That's the main goal for the Yankees. I guess then, if they have some left over they can go after a kid with a dream, but you gotta wonder if the timing will be wrong on this.
Whatever the case, I wanted to bring up Yuleski Gourriel's name again... because I know you love it!
