How do we know that? The was he is swinging the bat, he probably missed her. What an ass.


Even if he did choke her, how do we know if there was intent? I don't know if that can be proven..

Dmitri used to be known as having very good character and passion for the game and being the kind of personality you want on your team. He has really been souring his image these past couple of seasons.

.... and on the field. Lot of Leyland's comments re: Young haven't been particualry glowing or supportive. When he recently came off this year's DL Stint #1 (more to come) Leyland was not bubbling with enthusiam noting that he'll have to hit his way back into the lineup and that he doesn't have a lock on any role. Not Leylandesque support for a Vet.

I like Da Meat. He stayed positive when the team was a train wreck and was about the only thing approaching a Major League player at the time. But he's clearly in decline.

Da Meat Hook's in it pretty deep now...

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- A judge issued an arrest warrant for Detroit Tigers designated hitter Dmitri Young after he and his attorney failed to appear at a scheduled court hearing Tuesday.

Young is charged with domestic violence and is accused of choking a 21-year-old Toledo, Ohio, woman on April 14 at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham.

A judge ruled Tuesday that information provided by Young's attorney on the player's whereabouts did not meet a requirement that he leave the state only for work-related purposes. Judge Diane D'Agostini of the 48th District Court in Bloomfield Hills issued a bench warrant.

Young's attorney, William Swor, and the Tigers declined to comment.

Neither Swor nor Young were present for a pretrial hearing on the case Monday. Swor faxed a request to D'Agostini on Monday afternoon, asking that the pretrial hearing be delayed because he was scheduled to be in federal court in Miami for a different case.

At Tuesday's hearing, Assistant Oakland County prosecutor Tare Wigod told D'Agostini that Swor told him Young had a medical emergency and was out of state.

But D'Agostini rejected the request for a delay and demanded proof by the end of the day that Young was housed at a legitimate medical facility. She also ordered Swor to appear in her courtroom on Friday.

The court received a fax from Swor but it did not reflect the conditions of his bond -- specifically, the requirement that Young leave the state only for work, court administrator Jim Harkins said. He declined to reveal the contents of the fax.

A message seeking comment was left for Adam Katz, Young's agent.

If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, the 32-year-old Young could face up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Young is in his 11th major league season and fifth with Detroit. He was hitting .169 in 59 at-bats with four RBIs when he was placed on the disabled list late last month with an irritation of a strain in his right quadriceps.

Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

Rumor has it he is at Betty Ford Clinic for substance abuse help. Really surprised that this was not mentioned by his lawyer as it was all over the papers here yesterday. This whole thing is getting stranger by the week.
