A few weeks ago, I told all four (or are there five now?) of you about Lance Broadway’s New Year’s Eve party habits which allegedly involve ripping off his shirt and punching dudes in the face. Whatever happened, an arrest warrant was definitely issued for Broadway.
A commenter (toxo!) on my original post fed me updates on the situation, but since no media outlet seemed to be covering it and I wasn’t about to go calling up the Dallas D.A. to find out the details, I didn’t bother doing a new post.
Well now there are new details, friends!
According to the Houston Press’s still-excellently-named Hair Balls blog, Broadway and some scrub who’s known as “Cameron McGuire, of the United League Baseball’s Edinburg Roadrunners” turned themselves in on Feb. 19 and quickly bonded out. Further details on the legal matter seem to be lacking.
What is NOT lacking though is the fact that, on the same day Broadway turned himself in to Dallas police, The Star ran an article listing Broadway as one of the pitchers being granted a chance by the Jays this year.
Then Ken Fidlin, FOUR DAYS AFTER BROADWAY TURNED HIMSELF IN, listed Broadway as a contender for a job in the Jays ‘pen this year.
Now I’m confused. Broadway is still on Jays’ list of non-roster invitees to spring training, but there’s no way of knowing when that list was updated. So I’m left with some questions:
• Are the Toronto reporters just throwing Broadway’s name into their stories because he’s listed as one of the Jays’ invitees?
• Is Broadway, out on bail, actually taking part in spring training?
• Does Hair Balls have this whole thing wrong?
Since I’m more inclined to believe a blog named Hair Balls than I am a Sun reporter, I’m going to have to assume that Hair Balls is telling the story as it is.
Does anybody know what’s really going on here?
Because it’s been stuck in my head lately
And because it kinda vaguely sorta relates to Broadway’s antics. Enjoy.
