Some spanish TV channel has Chavez the president of Venezuela, saying that miguel cabrera sent him an autographed bat. If this is true it can ruin his young career and his marketbility. As Chavez is just like a Fidel Castro! Anyone here about this?

 

EDIT-

 

President Hugo Ch?vez Sunday claimed he was visiting his home state of Barinas, southwestern Venezuela, to seek strength to launch his re-election campaign. "We are heading towards the final lap, on December 3rd. Today we are engaging in a battle."

 

 

"Tighten your belts because you are going to face a red avalanche. The candidates of the empire should follow their way. They have the word defeat marked on their foreheads," he warned.

 

Ch?vez stressed that "December 3rd is not the finish line but the start line. It is the beginning of another era in the revolution." The Venezuelan ruler explained that on February 2, 2007, when he is to wear "the presidential sash from left to right, the new era will begin." Ch?vez underscored that such a new era would end on February 2, 2021.

 

"The first era was tough (1999-2006), but we succeeded. I invite you to join us in these 14 years to come. After 2021, I will think about my retirement," Ch?vez insisted. He suggested he would try to build a socialist Venezuela "where we all may live without so many hideous class differences."

 

The Venezuelan ruler claimed that his government plan for the next presidential term is "ready and moving forward." "The candidates of the empire (the United States) are saying that Ch?vez is not campaigning on the streets because people do not want him." He contended that he has conducted massive electioneering events in Maracaibo, Valencia and Barinas. "This is just an example of what is about to come."

 

Ministers, governors and parliamentarians attended Ch?vez' campaign act in Barinas. "The National Electoral Council (CNE) said that government officials may participate in campaign events during their days off."

 

The state-owned TV station VTV broadcast over two hours of Ch?vez' speech, during which the Venezuelan ruler claimed that his US counterpart George W. Bush ordered "his henchmen and hit men to use any means" to remove Ch?vez from power.

 

"What he (Bush) does not know is that I have friends even in the White House and I know that he said recently that by the time he leaves -because he knows that he is going to leave soon through the backdoor of history- Ch?vez should be removed from the Venezuelan Presidency."

 

"Mr. Bush, do anything you want. You will not be able to overthrow this government or put an end to my life. I am wearing this Maisanta scapular." Afterwards, Ch?vez showed a baseball bat and claimed it was a present of Venezuelan big leaguer Miguel Cabrera. "Just in case, if I come upon with the devil I am going to hit him on the backbone!"

Well Chavez is the leader of his homeland. I am sure he still has family that lives there, and Miguel did recently participate in the WBC representing his homeland. Just because he sends his country's leader a signed bat it does not mean he agrees with his political thought process, nor does it mean he thinks Chavez is some great guy.

Typical Red-Baiting from overly-sensitive "you know who's" who don't understand freedom of speech & political thought. Just because someone is a Communist it doesn't necessarily make them a bad person. Maybe most might think they are a mis-guided person, but still it is perfectly legal, and its what separates us from the totalitarian systems that frequently have benefitted both the Red-baiting Right Wing Fascistas & left wing anti-democratic Socialistas. You notice the only ones that like the extremes of politics are the Far Right and the Far Left, because both hate freedom and what it stands for, and it totally scares them.

 

As for Miguel, I doubt he considers Mr Chavez anything other than the leader of his country. As someone else pointed out, he may still have family living in Venezuela, and it would be in his own (and their) interests to keep Mr Chavez at least mildly amused, if not downright happy.

 

If the extreme Right-Wing Red-Baiters that live in one ethnic community in Miami can't see throught their own political hatred, and they drive this young man from our community, they'd best not be the ones complaining when the Marlins don't have anyone to drive in 100+ runs a year. :mad

You do have a point, but at the same time you don't see El Duque, Livan, or Jose Contreras sending Fidel Castro baseball memorabilia. I'm sure that those 3 guys would have played for Cuba in the WBC if Castro had allowed them. If it's true that this took place 6 years ago then I guess it isn't that big of a deal, considering he wasn't even in the Majors, and he was...what...18?

You're going a little bit overboard here just to be deliberately offensive. No one is going to drive Miguel Cabrera out of town over a bat he sent 6 years ago. I'm worried about the Marlins ownership not locking him up. That should be the concern. They won't "drive" him away but they may just trade him away.
