That being said... I read the Yuma Sun article on the Cansecos, and some of the stuff the new guy said indicates he has a screw loose. He dropped Pedro Martinez's name as someone who might play in Yuma, simply because he left Pedro a message. He said something about Gary Busey being a first base coach, and that 'several networks' are interested in doing a reality show about the Cansecos and the team.
Unless some network is actually paying the Cansecos to do this and make a lame reality show out of it, this new GM sounds a lot like Young, with all his (supposed) high-powered media connections and years of sports experience. All of which got him to Yuma with a proven criminal in that Smith guy, who is probably still on the run somewhere with his 'wanted by Interpol' wife.
Young's very lucky he didn't get lynched by the players last year, that the GL let him get away with backpedaling from Smith as soon as Smith disappeared.
So if some network is doing that, it would have been mentioned at the press conference, so this guy is talking out of his behind, just as Young did.
As they say on ESPN... 'come on, man.'
The worst thing about all this is that I had time to read about what goes on in the GL/NAL and in Yuma, Arizona, depsite never having worked in either the league or the town. Tells you what kind of life I have. Though, baseball is a small world and friends have some pretty first-hand knowledge of the last few years of the GL. Sad stuff. Guess it's like they say, you can't take your eyes off a train wreck.
