ESPN writing - Saslow on Aroldis Chapman & Jones on Cuba and Hemingway

The latest issue of ESPN The Magazine had two excellent pieces of writing, a feature by Eli Saslow and column by Chris Jones. The column was titled "Idol Thoughts" and an interesting and introspective look at Cuba, Ernest Hemingway and believing in something. The Saslow feature was yet another great story from him with "A World of His Own" about Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. It was a fascinating view into the life of someone who seemingly has it all, but also misses the life he left behind in Cuba.
