Odds and Ends: Ugueth Urbina’s comeback with the Phillies will be slightly delayed

Little known fact: Ugueth Urbina throws right, bats right, but he wields a machete with his left hand. Who knew? ell… the 5 workers on his farm who were attacked by Urbina and other men. The 32-year-old “free” agent was sentenced to 14 years in prison for attempted murder by the Venezuelan judicial system.

His lawyer said that the punishment was too severe, probably because if he’d done that in the United States, the defense attorneys would have trotted out his coach and a teammate to say what a great guy his is and he would have only gotten four months in prison. Guess the Fightin’s have to look elsewhere to solve their bullpen problem.

what about Pudge? — So does this mean that Pudge is officially on the lookout for a new piece of ass or will he be heading down to Venezuela for conjugal visits?
