He's Also Killing My Fantasy Team

The selfish prick that I am, I am going to turn the unfortunate story about a man's death into a complaint about my fantasy team. Angel Villalona, the future third basemen for the San Francisco Giants, was jailed on murder charges in the Dominican Republic after a 25 year-old man was fatally shot in a coastal city of the country. Villalona was visiting his home country and was apparently at the bar where the man was shot, after a fight broke out between the man and Villalona's friends.

A lot of you might be thinking, who the hell is Angel Villalona in the first place? If you do know who he is, you are either a Giants fan, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, or in my uncle's crazy ass fantasy league. The only reason this guy is on my team is because we are supposed to draft minor leaguers. So basically, I tanked this season in order to stockpile young talent like Stephen Strasburg, Buster Posey, Madison Baumgartner, Dominic Brown, and Villalona.

The strategy there is to build a good team for the future, and then dominate for years. There is the understanding though that some of these guys might not even pan out. But never though did I think I might potentially lose a guy because he might have killed someone. Not sure what's going to come out of this one, but I guess things could be worse. I mean, I could be dead.
