Oh Jimmy Bo…


You know, some stories are long in coming. It’s amazing, really, the things that just snap something into context. Sometimes they’re things that happen years later, like your ex-girlfriend coming out to you at a high school reunion some ten years later. Today’s event is Jim Bowden Arrested in Miami for DUI. Oh, wow, does that explain some things.

Sure, it explains things like leaving Ryan Church in the minors at the beginning of the season. It explains the leather pants. It absolutely explains completing the Soriano deal in the off-season without talking to Soriano about a position change. But, love him or hate him, he’s innocent until proven guilty.

What I want to know is….does running a baseball team while under the influence count as a misdemeanor, or is it more of a low-grade felony?

Please, for the love of God, Baseball, find us some owners so we can boot some of these clowns running the show.

[Update] Oh this just gets better and better, not only was Bowden arrested for DUI, his fiancĂ©e was arrested too. Capitol Punishment is all over this, and even has Jimmy Bo’s mugshot.

This really doesn’t look good for Bowden.

    Oh, he’s got nothing to worry about. In Miami you can hit and kill a man while boozed up, leave the scene, go home and have more drinks before you call the cops to report yourself and still get off scot-free and eventually end up as a contributor on Anderson Cooper 360. Yeah Rick Sanchez, I’m lookin at YOU.
