Christian Moreno of ESPN Deportes 1050 AM reports that Yordano Ventura has been killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic.

 

Awful. There have been other reports out of the Dominican Republic on the tragic news, and Moreno says it has been confirmed by the Dominican police. Fellow countryman Andy Marte was killed in a separate accident, according to Moreno, who also reports that both Ventura and Marte were "said to be under the influence." Ventura was just 25 years of age.

Drugs of abuse and actually giving a fuck about it.  Especially alcohol.  

What can MLB and MLBPA do about alcohol? Maybe I'm wrong in how I interpreted your words but you make it sound like this is only an mlb problem when alcohol is a problem all over the world. This isn't an isolated sports thing like PEDs. The whole planet has an alcohol problem.

fining/suspending players who get dui's would be a start

 

much like more intense orientation to newer players on the dangers

bro, he's in his home country and it's the offseason ... how is the MLB/MLBPA going to take preventive measures to avoid someone simply enjoying drinks with some family and friends? Shit happens. Players aren't invincible, they're humans at the end of the day, and make mistakes just like you and I.

You cant prevent everything.  Never said that.

 

But MLB and the MLBPA has taken a blind eye approach to this subject for a long time. I think it was 2 springs ago when players were getting DUI's like they were candy and not a damn thing was done.

 

There are plenty of things that CAN be done.  NONE of them are being done.

 

Instead lets take the oh, shit happens approach when if you take educational and preventive measures and save ONE life, is it worth it?
