Crazy crazy world.

I don't condone what he did but I think they should have put him in a 12 step rehab program just like anyone who was caught doing drugs. Sex is very addictive.


I guess they figured that soliciting a prostitute gives them a worse public image then having a drunk driver or steroid user on your team. It is a crazy world.

Either that or they were just itching to dump him and this is their only outlet. I'd say that's closer to the truth.

Well they're still paying him his entire contract but I guess dumping a player that's getting paid $19M wouldn't be looked kindly upon unless they had a reason.

Great point trevisc - you're right, how is this a bigger sin? Oh well, he'll turn up somewhere, while getting paid by the Rockies. Maybe NY? better hookers, LOL
