I'm not going to wish anything bad for the guy. Just like I wasn't happy to see Carpenter have Tommy John. As a player I know how devasting an injury can be. I hope Clay has a good healthy career. I just hope he doesn't pitch well against the Reds whenever they meet up.

He was drafted, at age 20, by the Boston Red Sox in the supplemental first round (42nd pick) of the 2005 draft. He was passed over by other teams because he was arrested for stealing 29 laptops from his high school and selling them.

I could really careless about some other teams rookie

So what? That was two or three years ago. I guarantee none of those GMs passing on him were doing it because they were found his conduct abhorrent. I guarantee they were just afraid he'd do something stupid down the line. With 20/20 hindsight, no competent GM would give a damn about some high school theft now.

Isn't that essentially the same thing?

So because he made a mistake in his life you hope his career will be horrible. What a swell guy.

Not at all. One assumes they wouldn't want their organization associated with someone who stole some computers, which frankly I doubt any of those guys care about.

The second is a GM afraid of a guy doing it again and causing their investment in the player to be a waste of money.

I understand the difference it just seems like the people who thought he would do it again didnt like him doing it. Either way it doesnt really matter now.

I didnt say I hope he has a bad career. I just dont care if he does.

For some reason I highly doubt that's what you meant by that post. From the way I read it you want the guy to have many misfortunes and his career to fall apart.

For the record I hope he has a great career. I hope he wins 20 games a year. I just hope he does bad against the Yankees, and the Reds. Other than that I could care less.

Thats because you're ignorant, but since you want to start an argument over it please tell me all the misfortunes Anibal Sanchez has had?

Which that is fair. It's when people wish misfortunes on a guy that I have a problem. I guess he just doesn't realize how hard it is to get yourself in the situation to be a professional player. Like i said before...I wish the guy the best of luck, but go Reds.

He pitched a good game. I am sure he will always remember the night he threw a no-hitter.

I'm glad he threw the no hitter and I hope he has a great career in front of him. Guys like him and Josh Hamilton show you that people can change for the better

Sanchez had surgery to repair a torn labrum earlier in the season. That's a pretty big misfortune for him to endure.
