Kyle Kendrick’s World Series ring found in a swamp

Kyle Kendrick throwing AP

You may recall that some people broke into Kyle Kendrick‘s Washington home during spring training and that, among other things, the jerks stole his World Series ring.  Well, the cops found it: it was hidden in a swamp, and they were led to it by someone who apparently (a) was not part of the robbery; but (b) knows things.

It’s always good to know people who know things.

I assume that the thieves hid it there so it would be safe as Kyle Kendrick’s star rises over the course of his major league career and then planned on fencing it when it hit peak value following his Hall of Fame induction.  But alas, those plans are now thwarted.

    They hid it in a swamp? And aparently told someone that they did? The quality of criminals these days just isn’t what it used to be.

      To make the story even better, it was hidden in an empty mentos container in the swamp. Amazing.

        Yeah, Charlie “Swamp Thing” Manual took the ring back to his off season home in the swamps of the bayou.

      Isn’t this basically the plot from “Winter’s Bone,” except not nearly as interesting?

        Dude, funniest comment on this site I’m at least a year, including all of mine. Nice.

    “They were led to it by someone who apparently (a) was not part of the robbery; but (b) knows things.”

    Yeah, I heard the Phillies called the Psychic Friends Network/Ms. Cleo., who directed them to the ring.

    Next, they will try to have Ms. Cleo pinpoint when they will start hitting again. I’m not even sure that with her outstanding psychic abilities she will be able to answer that.

    My sources say it was this guy.

      And apparently you can use HTML tags, but whatever you need to do to post images isn’t just HTML. That’s a big fail for me. A post preview button would be a good thing.

        Could have been. But, only Ms. Cleo truly knows the culprit of this dastardly deed.

    So the Log lady led police to his ring. Great.

    I think Kendrick did this himself and blamed it on the robbers……He does have control issues from time to time.

    I would enjoy the story more if it turned out the swamp ring was discovered in alligator poop, along with bones from the perp’s arm. Please, let it be so!

      The alligator would have never spit it up. Even a cold-blooded reptile knows that Kendrick didn’t deserve that ring.

    I’m going to personally anoint him a (new?) nickname: Kyle “Swamp Thing” Kendrick

    Has a ring to it!
