Good-field, no-hit Cuban SS signed, and the VORG goes wild!

The Dodgers continued their free-wheelin’, free-spending ways today, as they announced the signing of Cuban shortstop Erisbel Arruebarruena to a five year, $25 million deal.

The early scouting report on Arruebarruena is a very strong glove with a very weak bat.  But the VORG isn’t fretting about that.  We are celebrating Arruebarruena’s possible appearance in the Majors.  If he DOES make it to the bigs, he will tie William VanLandingham and Jarrod Saltalamacchia for the longest names (first and last) in MLB history (20 letters).

We’ll be eagerly watching Arruebarruena’s progress!

Post-script: The Dodgers later corrected his name to Erisbel Arruebarrena, which leaves him at 19 letters. :-(
