Report: Octavio Dotel And Luis Castillo Arrested In Narcotics Sting In Dominican Republic

Who is ready for a particularly grim session of Let’s Remember Some Guys? Because according to reports coming out of the Dominican Republic, former MLB players Octavio Dotel and Luis Castillo have been arrested in what authorities have described as “the largest operation against organized crime” in the country

Well, this wasn’t what I was expecting with “drug ring” and former baseball players….

Thread needs a "Blowtel" tag.

Will they use the Pedro Guerrero defense?

From what I've read, Dotel and Castillo were allegedly helping a drug lord launder his money.

It's Castillo who dropped the ball.

It's Castillo who dropped the ball.

He will probably just get a slap on the wrist.

If they have softball in prison, will this count as team #14 for Dotel?

Based on the headline, I was thinking that this was the answer to the question "Who shot J.R. Ortiz?"
