what the fuck, robbie alomar

Read this.

If this is all true, this makes him a tremendous scumbug. Inexcusable actions. But while I was shaking my head in disgust the whole time, this part really raised an eye:

In March or early April, 2005, the Defendant, ROBERTO ALOMAR, advised the plaintiff, ILYA DALL, that he, the Defendant, was raped by two Mexican men after playing a ball game in New Mexico or a southwestern state, when he was seventeen years of age.

THIS. This sounds incredibly fishy and unbelievable. What is more believable, perhaps, is considering the possibility that Alomar may have been, oh, having sex with men and covering up part of his inclinations (remember all those Gay Met rumors, leading up to that Piazza bullshit?), leading to a vast complicated web of denial including NOT GETTING TESTED FOR HIV. This is an extreme, sad, pitiable , dangerous example of what life in the closet can entail.

Of course, that’s all projection on my part. But this enrages me. I pity Ms. Dall. I pity any sexual partner of Alomar’s. I hope Mary Pierce is fine.

And I pity Roberto Alomar himself. This is a terrible thing to have to go through. And the sad thing is, it didn’t have to be like this. I pity him, but this is inexcusable and so fucking sad.

    not to treat you like my token gay baseball friend, but i am sure you have thought about this: do you think we will ever have an openly gay MLB player? and if so how long will it take?

    i think about it often, and to be honest i really don’t see it happening for a really long time. decades, even, if it actually happens at all.
