    I think this is complete horseshit.

    I'm not saying that it didn't happen, but I'm saying that she should be telling it to the police, not Twitter.

    Now MLB is supposed to do what, exactly? Personally, I say nothing. It's an unfounded allegation that should be absolutely ignored and not acted upon until such time as it has been officially investigated by the authorities.

    Until then, it's just more of this "guilty until proven innocent but oh nevermind we're not even going to try to prove anything but expect you to act like it was proven" crap.

    Yeah...I find it pretty difficult to believe that a 6'4", 260lb professional athlete struggled for 10 minutes trying to pull a tiny, screaming woman into a public restroom before just giving up. Something doesn't add up here.

    It straight-up reeks of horseshit. And I can hear tumblr intensifying as we speak.

    Plot twist:

    "Bissen's post was retweeted more than 2,000 times within six hours of posting, and received hundreds of replies — including a couple from Twins players. Former Twin Trevor Plouffe, Sano's teammate at the time, tweeted "I'm so sorry about this. I understand why you didn't, but I wish you would have come to me." And current Twins pitcher Trevor May tweeted, "I'm sorry Betsy."

    It would seem that a former and current teammate believe it's entirely possible Sano is capable of acting the way she described.

    Sano has completely denied the accusation.

    All the more reason to go to the police, not social media.

    If Sanó assaulted her, and she wants to come forward, seriously, why didn't she go to the police? Because, doing it on social media, she was able to casually cause strife in Butch Davis's life, too. What's the point of that? If Sanó did that, prosecute him fully, and he should be held accountable, but dragging Butch Davis into the whole mess? Why?

    Internet Kangaroo courts care not for the release of facts. And famous people are willing to throw money at you to make you go away.

    MLB has a nice mini documentary on Roberto Clemente up on their site.

    My earliest baseball memory is watching him play in the '71 World Series.

    If I could pick one player as the ambasssador for all of baseball, it would be him.

    Do you have any of his baseball cards that called him “Bob Clemente”?

    Oh yeah....all his cards up until the 1970 issue had him as Bob, that's when he flat told everyone "My name is not Bob, it's Roberto."
