The Big Question: Shouldn&rsquo t you be introducing these lists?
Probably. Although they won&rsquo t look all that different from last year&rsquo s with the exception of a short essay in front. Like this one.
Ian Anderson shares a name with the lead singer of British progressive rock band Jethro Tull, although he will need to fill out a bit more to be Thick as a Brick.
Jones spoke. Now it is baseball's turn. The clichés of "family" and "going to war out there" will be tested in a time of national protest -- not only by the Orioles trying to catch Boston and Toronto in the American League East but also by the real stuff in the clubhouse, of sitting side by side with a star teammate eight months a year, during the most polarizing time in a generation, knowing how one of your family members thinks, especially in Baltimore where Freddie Gray died in police custody a year ago. And with all of that, deciding whether to reach out and say something. Or continue to say nothing.
This was why so many understood the hell it had been for so many Cuban athletes to remain on the island. Anywhere else on earth, they were sweepstakes winners. Yet after they performed before a crowd of Cubans at El Latino or Kid Chocolate arena, they laughed off being nervous about pitching at Yankee Stadium or boxing at Madison Square Garden: No matter what their paydays or television ratings, there was always something profoundly lacking. Even for many back home that celebrated their escape, there was no better place to see them shine than in Havana.

After the session was done, I took Hector out for dinner at his favorite spot in Havana’s Chinatown and he invited me to join him at the upcoming World Series of Boxing tournament the following week. Cuba was going head-to-head against Ukraine at the Ciudad Deportiva stadium just after the free Rolling Stones concert that was expected to bring anywhere between a few hundred thousand or even a million Cubans from across the island. This boxing tournament was deemed “semi-professional” and meant a lot more money for the families of boxers, a concession by the government to stave off more defections.
Baseball has never been very good at evolution or change. The game has two black managers, no black owners and one black general manager. It has one Latino owner, no Latino managers and one Latino general manager. Only within the past two years has Major League Baseball mandated that clubs hire actual professional translators instead of using the backup shortstop to speak English for Chicago Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman.
