Jose Abreu is already paying dividends in Chicago, despite the fact that the White Sox are paying about $11,332,283 more annual dollars to Abreu than he was paid by the Cuban National Series, which pays their best players about $175 US dollars per month. Abreu comes to the Big Leagues already a tremendously accomplished power hitter, matching Yoenis Cespedes’ historic power season of 2010-2011, setting the home run record in the Cuban National Series with 33 (later re-claimed by fellow gargantuan Cuban slugger, Alfredo Despaigne). The only difference: Abreu hit his 33 bombs in just 66 games, whereas Yoenis’ were spread, relatively speaking, over 90 games. That’s a clean and tidy one-bomb-per-two-games rate, which is pretty absurd to imagine.
