Wilson Ramos, next year's projected starting catcher for the Washington Nationals, has been kidnapped in his native Venezuela, according to several media reports.

...God, I hope he's okay.

What a terrifying situation. Sad as it sounds, it's hard to believe that this doesn't happen more often to wealthy ballplayers when they return home.



"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
