Smooth Criminal

Scott Spiezio and his stupid effing flavor-saver are running from the law. Ergo, he's been released by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Police issued a six-count warrant for the 35-year-old utility infielder's arrest following a December car crash which alleges driving under influence, driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08% or more, hit and run, aggravated assault, aaaaaaaand assault and battery.

What a guy.

The maximum penalty is two years in state prison, where he may or may not become someone's bitch for dying his facial hair red. On purpose.

I feel bad for the guy, I really do, and I hope he can get his life together. I think releasing him was the right thing to do, but La Russa's reaction to the event just amazes me:
"I had heard there was an incident in California," La Russa said. "I didn't think anything would come of it."
WTF? Between this and his adamantly insisting that he believes McGwire never took any PED's, I think La Genius has lost it.
