There's no crying in Baseball.

 

The Rays have been good every year and they'll be good - without Franco - in 2024. 

 

Their future Infield is their top 5 prospects.

I am/was willing to wait until everything settles and facts come out, but this doesn't bode well for his future. If you think you can get this behind you, you show up, do what you need to do. When you don't show, all action can be taken against you by MLB.

He has to be indefinitely suspended without pay at this point right? Nobody, including MLBPA, is going to stick up for him if he doesn't show up in court.

Crazy fall.


I have a pretty similar stance, however, his recent actions are making it increasingly difficult for me to presume any innocence on his part. Like Mackus stated, his career is more than likely over and the Rays will be looking at recovering all the money they can. You can't defend yourself if you don't show up to face the charges.

Apparently, Wander showed up for questioning this morning with his new legal team and was arrested after [the interview].

I read on MLB trade rumors that a mother of one of his victims was arrested as well today.

Tough read for me.

This poor girl seemingly had no chance for a normal life.

While her mother is a toxic pile of crap, Wander's messages meet the definition of grooming. 

 

So, so gross. And yes, incredibly unfortunate for the girl.

Plus, I had no idea Franco was married until I read the article. Not that it makes that much of a difference, but it only makes the story more sorted.

IMO it means they can toss the Romeo & Juliet angle into the trash.

Yeah, this isn't a Shakespearean tragedy.
