Ronald Belisario is either immature or stupid

Belisario, for whatever reason, has shown little motivation to report to the Dodgers’ spring training complex and it’s caught the ire of the wrong man.  Here’s Dodgers GM Ned Colletti:

“You would think that when you have the opportunity to make a living
throwing a baseball, and the opportunity presents itself to pitch in the
big leagues, support your family and build a career, that would be
something you would pursue to the fullest.”

The 27-year-old posted an impressive 2.04 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 70 2/3 innings out of the Dodgers’ bullpen last season.  He needs to make a beeline for Glendale, Arizona.

    Maybe he ran across some hot strange. I’ve seen Venezuelan women in their native habitat and there’s a few I would have missed those appointments for in my younger days. Or maybe he just got hung up trying to bust Ugeth Urbina out of jail.

    This is what happens when parents get divorced. Poor kid. I think Frank needs to get on the phone and remind Ronny that it’s not his fault, Mommy and Daddy still love him, and to listen to Uncle Ned when he says to come home.

    Maybe he’s dead.

    Maybe he went to an all you can eat joint with Venezuelan legend Andres Galarraga. Then either they’re still eating, or Andres collapsed and Belisario is trapped beneath him.
