    I really hope this is only a rumor.

    So basically his baseball life is over.
    Tragic way to end such a great streak.

    I really really really really hope he is innocent. I've met him and never got the creeper vibe but you'll never know sometimes. I really hope it's just a case of stupid girls making accusations (that does happen too, you know). *sigh* Anyway, he's screwed either way. It's a shame.

    This kinds of instances happen a lot more than you'd think, they just don't go reported. Maybe it's only reported because her dad was pissed about it, but drunken girls getting taken advantage of happens a lot.

    I hope he didn't do it and it gets proven.

    I personally think it's a stupid law, and don't see the big deal, to be honest.

    I'm assuming you mean having sex with a minor. Those girls were over the age in the Bahamas (16) so the rape charges seem to be the real deal.

    Yeah, that's what I meant. I didn't notice the Bahamas part.

    Has there been any development in this case? I haven't seen anything new about it since the 28th of December.

    I hope he breaks the record! I'm totally going to watch that game on Sunday. "If Wittels, a junior shortstop who had 100 hits in 56 games last year, goes oh-for Friday or Saturday, the series finale will appear only on ESPN’s web network. But if the streak is alive come Sunday, ESPNU will carry the affair – and the man whose record is at stake will be in the broadcast booth."

    Wittels' hit streak over.

    Fish4Life Do you bleed Marlins Baseball?

    Just to hard to get back into the groove after a 8 month layoff. Looked very jittery last night

    After taking the heat for letting him play, that was a worst case scenario for FIU last night.

    This game wasn't advertised at all in the school. Not even through email.

    I mean, sh*t. If you're going to try and gain some popularity, there needs to be a better dissemination of information. I missed this game and I actually wanted to see it.


    ...and now he lost the hit streak. Awesome.
