New York, New York (IP) - The Yankess have replaced coach Joe Torres with Fidel Castro. Castro recently asked for political asylum during a trip to the United Nations.
Fidel will start his new job on Monday. Yankees owner Dave Steinbrenner says Castro will bring a new style of discipline to the ailing team.
Fidel was interviewed by TheSpoof.com sports reporter Anna Marquez and was quoted as saying he will set up a firing squad to bring order to the New York team. Players who can not get with the program face serious consequences.
On the other hand players who show improvement will receive boxes of Cuban cigars, guayaberra shirts, guava pastries, and will be introduced to some hot Cuban chicks.
Fidel said conditions had become so bad in Cuba that he had no choice but to leave. Recently his brother, Raul Castro, disappeared after leaving Cuba on a makeshift raft during the height of the hurricane season. It is said there are only fifteen people still living on the island nation, along with four chickens, a dog, two cats and three burros.
