Remember Aroldis Chapman‘s speeding ticket? He was clocked at 93 — normally a changeup for him — but his attorney pleaded it down to an eephus pitch:

Police in the Columbus suburb had reported clocking Chapman at 93 mph on Interstate 71. They found that his Kentucky driver’s license was suspended.

His attorney Michael King entered Chapman’s guilty plea Wednesday to going 83 mph in a 65 mph zone, with the suspension charge dismissed. King says the $150 fine and $89 in costs have been paid.

Hey, I had a case with that Michael King guy once! Eh, moving right along.

Chapman will pay a $150 fine. We have still never heard any word about that weird tied up woman in the hotel room thing. We probably haven’t heard about all manner of sinister plots involving baseball’s Keyser Soze.

    Chapman should I have turned to the officer and said, “What, I like speed”

    Oh good, so Chapman’s legal issues should all be over now.
