The Score: A’s Maxwell not allowed into Canada, won’t play vs. Blue Jays

Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell will be forced to miss his team’s four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays next week due to ongoing legal issues that will prevent him from entering Canada, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Shouldn't have knelt for the anthem, kid.

I wonder if Sean Murphy will get called up from AA.

How come more MLB players aren't banned from Canada? DUIs can get a person banned from there, why not a player?

To this day, I'm surprised that Matt Bush is/was allowed into Canada given his criminal history.

I wonder the same thing about Rougned Odor. Though with Bautista gone, he may not longer be considered a threat.

Eh, I've been thrown out of nicer countries.

Hey, we keep letting Bryan Adams tour here. They owe us.

The problem is probably not the crime itself, but rather that he has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing. The problem is not that he is a safety risk, more that he is a flight risk. I would not be surprised if the US and Canada have an agreement to not allow people out and awaiting senetencing to cross into either country.
