AUTHOR - PETER C. BJARKMAN

A: This was the guy in the Anthony Bourdain "No Reservations" Cuba episode.

B: This guys knows more about Cuban baseball than the vast, vast majority of American baseball people.

C: He drinks at the Lafayette Brewing Company in Lafayette, IN where I drink mightily. I just discovered A and B today.

I am thinking about writing an article about this with an interview. Any questions to be asked? He has met Twins scouts in Cuba and they do scout there . . . but they really scouted players from The Netherlands.
