Bubba Starling OF Kansas City Royals
Kansas City OF prospect Bubba Starling, who once was a four star quarterback that signed his LOI to Nebraska, was arrested on charges of underage drinking.The 19 year old was arrested along with three other Royals prospects on the same charges -- but the others were not named. Instead of trying ut his football career, he was drafted #5 overall by the Royals and got a $7.5 millions dollar contract. The players were all stopped at a DUI checkpoint but none of the three tested over the legal limit. Because the passengers were probably huge pussies.
GM Dayton Moore stated the following regarding the incident: "The players involved, which included Bubba Starling, put themselves in jeopardy by having a drink and not being of legal age. It was not a good decision on their part" Of course he waited til the next sentence to mention that drinking and driving is bad. I'd probably have more solid jokes right now if I wasn't already drunk, and there was a pregame waiting for me.
