    Nats Catcher Kidnapped in Venezuela

    Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has been kidnapped, according to multiple media reports.
    Details are scarce, but Ramos is a native of Venezuela, where abductions have reached a near-epidemic level. Typically, the wealthy are targeted. As a Major League baseball player, Ramos certainly fits that bill.
    Ramos, 24, is expected to be the Nationals starting catcher next season.
    Eek.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
