The Matanzas baseball fans are shocked by the news of the Victor Mesa´s retirement at the end of this season. It is no wonder, because from the 32 presence in the senior management, Crocodiles team maintains stable performance in the Series and won twice the second place.
The uncertainty of the future is inevitable. However, beyond the controversies surrounding the decision to Victor, his pupils keep your head up and cling to second place in the table just hours to confirm their presence in the playoffs. These days they have not believed in Vegueros or Lions.
In the decisive round of the last four, three new reinforcements arrive each team. This may represent an extra plus for the final. Each set will arm the puzzle according to the needs.
Noting the situation in the rest of animators, from my point of view Crocodiles have the best conditions to win the title in the current championship. Four aces on pitching (Freddy Asiel Alvarez, Jonder Martinez, Danny Betancourt and Yoanni Yera) are the best apex by that pitchers represent 75 percent of a possible victory.
It is true that do not have a closer hierarchy but can hope to apply that role or take one of the four mentioned above.
As for the choice of reinforcements, it would be appropriate to strengthen the center line, the power at bat and an effective troubleshooter. Among the possible names to consider are Eriel Sanchez, Yosvani Alarcon, Yordan Manduley, Yunior Paumier, Danny Aguilera and Yadier Hechavarría.
My vote of confidence is for men Victor Mesa. Several consecutive seasons at the gates of greatness; added experience of management; experienced players in these conflicts; it seems that this year the outlook is favorable to give great joy to Matanzas fans.
