Ugueth Urbina sentenced to 14 years in prison

In jail, when someone tries to make Uggie their 'lady friend', he's going to say "Back off muchacho, I saved 40 games in 2002"

"The ruling was too severe," said Jose Antonio Baez, a former attorney who represented Urbina.

is he 'former' since failed to do his job and once the guy gets sentenced it is no longer a 'current' lawyer?

I think we all realize that, still doesn't change the fact that the story makes no sense.

I remember reading some articles and seeing some news stories about this when it all happened. I think Outside the Lines did a pretty good segment on it. From what I remember there was some big holes on both sides of the story but I recall seeing pictures of some of the guys who were burned and it was pretty gnarly. I don't know enough about the case to make a judgment of guilt, but it definitely is a sad story.

Didn't his mom get kidnapped at one point? Or am I confusing him for a different Latin player?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

That's pretty sad. The man goes from being a millionaire MLB closer to being behind bars for 14 years. Ack.. :-P
