Pelotero is now on Netflix
If you have a Netflix account, you can now watch Pelotero, the movie about MLB signing Dominican prospects that focused on the signing of Miguel Sano, for free. I did so yesterday afternoon.
We had a thread on Twins Daily about the movie a few months ago, if you want to reference it. It included questions asked to the director of the filem.
After watching it yesterday, I was puzzled by the clear implication that the Pirates scout Rene Gayo somehow manipulated MLB baseball to force Sano to sign with Pittsburgh. I can't figure out how he got that leverage. It is as if someone in MLB owed him a major favor, or MLB wanted Sano to sign with a small market team. I can't figure out how come 29 other teams didn't call BS, like the Twins did. I'd sure love to get some inside speculation on how he had MLB in his back pocket.
