If I remember correctly, the latest AFL golden boy, Eduardo Escobar, was one of Wilder's signings, yes?


Does anyone remember any of the other signings, and if so, did any of Wilder's signings develop into anything of note?

Rafi Reyes and Juan Silverio. Not sure on Eduardo. It hasn't been mentioned so I doubt it.

The Sun-Times piece isn't bad:

The Sox actually blew the whistle on this. Reinsdorf told MLB to investigate when several minor league players came forward. The result of that investigation was turned over to the FBI and no current member of the team is under investigation or is part of the controversy.

Hope Dave gets a nice long prison sentence and never works in baseball again.

Yeah. This clown had a quote yesterday saying, "I've lost everything. My family and everything. I'm a human and I just want respect and to be treated with humanity."

Sorry, dude. You deserved to lose everything.

I was amazed when I read that quote, I predict that he will next lose some freedom.
