He is on his way back to the Cleveland Indians folks, no matter what his name is these days the Cleveland Indians pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona who now goes by the name of Roberto Hernandez got his visa today, this is the good news. The bad news is major league baseball has handed Hernandez a 3 week suspension and the Indians could have really used Hernandez’s help now. I am not sure what kind of shape Hernandez is in or if he is ready to be thrown into major league action yet, but let’s be serious here, how bad could he be compared to some of the pitching we have seen lately.
Major league baseball should have backed off Hernandez in this case, the guy has already surrendered lots of his pay and missed the entire first half of the season. The Indians need help and they need it now. Lets just hope these three weeks go by quickly and Hernandez/Carmona is ready to go once these weeks go by. The important thing Cleveland fans need to hope for is the Indians can hang in there long enough number one, number 2, lets hope Hernandez can be a asset to the Tribes rotation.
As far as the lesson I hope Hernandez learned, lets hope the next time he decides to travel home, he takes an American Express card with him. It takes way to long to acquire a Visa where he comes from.
Hey be sure to tell us what you think about the return of Fausto Carmon/Roberto Hernandez, just leave your comments below….
