    I say they should just cut him loose at this point, he fraudulently entered into the contract and he hasn't produced consistent results... let him go and save some cap room to go after better talent on the mound.

    As someone who has worked in professional baseball and is returning to professional baseball this season, I can say that this happens a lot more often than you think. There has even been rumors that Albert Pujols isn't really Albert Pujols.

    It isn't too surprising, but teams have a legal liability in these circumstances if they sponsor the work visas for these guys to come up here and play. It's the kind of thing that will only go away when someone draws the line in the sand on it. I say, let him go.

    A lot of these teams know these guys aren't really who they are or not the age they list on the bogus birth certificate they provide. The teams don't care as long as the guy produces and makes the orginization money.

    Most Dominicans, Venezuelans and Cubans aren't the age they say they are and obviously the person they say they are. Puerto Ricans are who they say they are and their age is correct b/c PR is a US territory and provide legit documents.

    Indians put him on the reserve list, which i believe means he wont play this year or get paid his 7 Mil bonus he just got

    but then again, he might not even get a new VISA That he needs to get back into the US
