A couple of top baseball stories that can’t be classified as trade rumors but shouldn’t be ignored:
Dontrelle Willis was arrested this morning on a drunk driving charge and refused a breathalyzer. It’s just a shame to see a stand-up guy and role model do this. I mean we’ve all urinated on the street before but there’s no excuse for driving while intoxicated.
Meanwhile, Ken Griffey Jr. broke his left hand in a mysterious home accident. Most likely a vigorous session of Guitar Hero was involved. Griffey’s teammate, Adam Dunn, actually played the 2005 season with a broken hand. I’m not sure which bones were involved in either case, however. It’s still quite possible that Junior could be ready for spring training.
