What a bastard!

I'd do the same thing if I had to.

Glad to see Ozzie backing Contreras on this matter.

No chance in hell Jose faces any legal problems as a result of this. None.

Ozzie is the best.

Imagine being from a country as oppressive as Cuba and being separated from your family; what would you do?

Ozzie will get ripped by some local media, I bet, for his comments. **** them. Good for Ozzie and Jose.

remember how OG was saying something was bothering him on Opening Day... wonder if it was related to this?

Uh, I would actually like Contreras less if he didn't try to do this. I guess I just assumed he had?

You know it's coming. It's all too predictable. Kind of funny how the Sox strung together five consecutive quality starts after Jay wrote off the starting rotation two games into the season. :D:

There was a rumor on a blog site that he was served with divorce papers before his start on opening day. It seems more likely that he was probably informed/served about this case, if anything at all.

Browsing over other boards there was also some rumor about him getting divorce papers right before the game too.

Other factors like this help explain the quick hook too (he was bad but I guess Ozzie knew there was no chance).

According to an article in Wednesday's edition of the Los Angeles Times, Jose Contreras has been implicated in offering $200,000 to finance the smuggling operation bringing his wife and two daughters to Florida from Cuba in June 2004. That accusation was made Tuesday in a Florida courtroom by Geoffrey Rodrigues, a convicted felon who admitted to participating in two smuggling operations in 2004.Hopefully this won't affect Jose's performance

The funniest thing was his column today calling for media, et al to police themselves and be good citizens of society. I guess that doesn't include making **** up to slam various individuals & teams based on personal gripes.

I love the fact that Ozzie said if its true that Contreras way over payed at 200,000 and Ozzie said for that money he would swim to Cuba and get the families:wink:

$200,000 is a small price to pay for your family's safety

The worst thing about what Ozzie said is that he is talking as if it's true. Somebody acused Jose of doing this. It is not proven. Whether it was the right thing to do is a different matter.
