He is always involved in some craziness e.g. kidnapping of his mother, this incident. It's sad, because he used to be a solid closer/relief pitcher.

Maybe this is some sort of payback for his mother being kidnapped. Pure speculation on my part obviously.

I started thinking, "I swear I read some crazy-bad trade idea involving Urbina from last off-season."

And I was right!

1. Trade Paul Konerko, Neil Cotts, prospect to Detroit for Ugueth Urbina, one of their young SP (saves appx. 3 mill.)http://gastricreflux.net/boards/html/emoticons/ahhh.gif

Yeah, I am thinking the same thing. I am thinking that people in his house had something to do with it, he found out, and wanted to kill them.

Easy, you go to Valpo High (note I went to VHS and was there during the slashing incident last year.)

In all seriousness, I bet that defense is as Hawk would say BEEEE EESSSS!!!!

Don't mess with a man's mother!

Seriously, that's crazy though, the type of stuff you see in movies. Him and all the other baseball players are probably real big shots there

IIRC, Ugie lived with Ozzie during the during the beginning of the 2005 season before Ugie signed his free agent deal with the Tigers, and that Ozzie considers him a close friend.

(correction: beginning of 2004)
