Hector Luna of Las Aguilas Cibaenas

The Dragons' Hector Luna is currently playing for the Aguilas (Eagles) in the Domincan Winter League has been doing pretty well so far.  You can see his stats here.  Luna is coming off of a knee injury that ended his 2013 season prematurely.  He appears to be healthy now and hopefully can do some damage for the Dragons in 2014.  ESPN3 has a replay of the Aguilas vs. the Leones from December 12th here, Luna is in the starting lineup hitting in the middle of the order.

A Meticulous Metric of Baseball Team Names

Plants & Animals > Animals > Mythical Creatures > Chunichi Dragons is the taxonomy of the Dragons' team name according the baseball team name poster created by the Pop Chart Lab.  You can see the poster here.  They have some other good ones as well, probably my favorite of them all is the Fantastical Fictive Beer poster, but there are some other good ones too, plus another couple of baseball related ones.  Originally saw the link to Pop Chart Lab on the Uni-Watch Holiday Gift Guide.  Happy holidays!
