08:43 AM ET 10.06 | As of Saturday, the Marlins remained very much in the mix for Cuban defector Jose Dariel Abreu, who hit .374 with 35 homers in 71 games in 2012 and .382 with 13 homers in 42 games this season. The Giants are reportedly the favorite to sign him, according to MLB.com. But the Marlins were expected to make a legitimate bid. Abreu worked out for teams this past week, including a Marlins contingent led by GM Dan Jennings. Abreu, 26, could play third base, but first base is considered his better position.

So what is new. A lot of Cubans end up in Miami. President Regan let them empty their jails and send them by the boat loads.

Right you are. It was Regan who granted complete amnesty to 20 to 30 million illegal immigrants. My bad. The number of Cubans in that lot are unknown.
