    Ugueth Urbina hopes to return to MLB

    Recently released from prison in Venezuela after serving seven years of a 14-year sentence for attempted murder, former big league reliever Ugueth Urbina hopes to return to MLB according to Reyes Urena of El Nacional. The right-hander is currently working out with the Caracas Lions.

    "The objective is to pitch," said Urbina. "When? My arm will say, and that's why I'm here. I'll work out two times a day if it's necessary, but my primary goal is to suit up with the Lions. After that, we'll know if any doors open to me up north (in MLB), which is what I want. I know that right now my mechanics aren't very good, but my arm is healthy. I only have to work on the details."

    Alexander Mendoza of El Nacional recently reported Urbina was able to work out and play softball while in prison, and it's been rumored that he even hit 90 mph recently. The 39-year-old last pitched for the Tigers and Phillies back in 2005, and he owns a 3.45 ERA with 10.5 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 11 big league seasons with six different teams. His son Juan is a prospect with the Mets.

    Go out on your front lawn, take a dump and see how long your neighbors will talk about that little slice of life. That's what Mike D did to this franchise./QUOTE]

    He needs to get a bit more fire power in his arm before he returns to the MLB. He can't just stab away and hope to get on a team.

    He's a murderer get it?

    He'd be a great addition to any team. People are probably afraid to win against him now. Bowden is about to report that he would have to be signed in a package deal with Plaxico and Gilbert Arenas.

    Yeah, really can't see a team taking a chance on this guy. The talent is there but the baggage from that sort of charge and the jail time will prevent a team from signing him.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 49-62, games this week vs. Cardinals (3), Angels (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.

    Ill take the publicity on the Brewers. Bring him in for spring training just to see what he's got. Whats it hurt?

    Obviously I would never expect much but crazier things have happened.
