- Question:-The kidnapping of Wilson Ramos probably raises the following question among Cub fans....?
Why couldn't they kidnap Zambrano?
He makes a lot more money. Maybe they thought he would smash their heads in with a baseball bat like he has done to the gatorade cooler many times.
I'm not making fun of Ramos, it is very unfortunate for him, but I'm just saying, if they wanted Venezuelan baseball players...

Keep his family in your thoughts. Pray for his safety, until then he's in the good Lord's hands.

Read the rest in the link. I know it's a new and developing story, but why is this not on Yahoo! Sports or ESPN yet?
@Matt: I first saw it on the "bottom line" on ESPN. But it wasn't even breaking news or anything. They later had an ingame update during the Duquesne and Arizona game.
@nas88car: I know. I've heard enough of the PSU stuff. They report the same damn sh*t all day! It's nothing new.
Answer:-You're right. I'm extremely disappointed that this hasn't been on the Yahoo front page, let alone the Yahoo Sports front page. I'll give Yahoo the benefit of the doubt, though. I'm sure they haven't reported the story on the grounds that they want more details, in order to write a good article.
I haven't turned on my T.V. yet today, so I'm not sure whether or not ESPN is talking about it, but if they aren't, that's disheartening.
I knew kidnappings were prevalent in low-income nations, especially when the perpetrators know the potential victim has money. In the event that they visit such poor countries, famous people, such as Wilson Ramos, should travel with an entourage.
