Former Major League Baseball pitcher Octavio Dotel and infielder Luis Castillo — each of whom played 15 seasons and won a World Series ring — were reportedly arrested in the Dominican Republic on Tuesday in connection with a major sweep targeting a drug trafficking and money laundering network.
The fuck is going on with mid-late 2000s pitchers on the White Sox? As a reminder, 2003 Cy Young runner up Esteban Loaiza was busted for smuggling coke a year and a half ago, just weeks after he was mingling amongst Sox fans at Soxfest. Like I remember thinking to myself as he was talking to random fans, “hey that’s Esteban Loaiza. Wonder what he’s up to these days? He had a few nice years”. Legit 2 weeks later he was popped. Hate to see it.
Now we got Octavio Dotel pulling the same shit. He was actually good over his career as well. He was a journeyman that played on 13 teams but was solid for a good while as a late inning, high leverage guy. Stats were pretty damn good, all things considered.
Next we’re gonna hear that Bobby Jenks is Heisenburg and Jose Contreras is Scarface or some shit. Hey White Sox pitchers!!!
