Glad justice was served. Who knows how good this kid would of been.

Child porn offenders and sexual predators get 5-10 years for ruining lives. A drunk driver gets 51 years. If he killed me or you he wouldn't have gotten 51 years. Not that I mind the book being thrown at him, but man the system is busted!

You're probably right, but he did also have two previous DUIs with injuries. I'd be interested to see what he have received if he was a first time offender.

Yes, previous DUIs and he did kill three people. Not just Adenhart. Harsh penalty for a harsh crime.

I'm surprised he got that much in California, but I'm glad he did.

Not sure what that even means. :confused: They have some of the toughest laws in the country against DUI offenders.

I agree to a certain extent but this guy basically committed a mass murder and paralyzed another. If you read up on him, you'll quickly realize that he had no business near a car, ever. Sex offenders should go to a nasty place in the prison system, and never see the light of day, agreed there.

I betcha if the person was a multiple child porn offender or sexual predator they would get more than 5-10 years. Especially if they killed thier last victim...

So one injustice should justify another? As others have said, this guy killed 3 and paralyzed another...while having a history of similarly inspired feats of driving-ignorance. He got what he deserved.

But as you pointed out, many others (unfortunately) don't get what they deserve.

Not to take anything away from the severity of the crime, but i heard on the radio today that the one guy actually made a remarkable recovery and isn't paralyzed. They said he actually threw out a first pitch last season. Sorry I don't have a link, just what I heard today. Hopefully this was some justice to the families who lost thier loved ones.

Yes, he did recover and threw out a first pitch, and that is wonderful. However, the injury he suffered is fatal almost 100% of the time.

I couldn't disagree more. I doubt the fact that Adenhart was a baseball player affected the sentencing much at all. I'm not an advocate for child porn offenders or sexual predators, but this guy didn't "ruin lives," he ended them, thanks to his utter disregard for the laws regarding driving under the influence. If he was a first-time offender he wouldn't have gotten this harsh of a sentence, but this guy got penalized several times for his past behavior and went out and did it again, and now innocent people are dead because of it. The system did what it should do here, it's just too damned bad that the previous penalties weren't enough to get this guy to stop endangering other people's lives.

    • I don't remember a lot of Hoes clinging.  I was more upset they traded Hader and the draft pick.
    • Absolutely. Think about how much we clung to a guy like LJ Hoes, and Hernaiz is a far better prospect.  It's wild to think that trading Hernaiz hasn't even made so much as a ripple in the farm system. We've come a looooong way. 
    • One stretch-comp deserves another. Had forgot that Syd Thriftism re. EdRod I: "the next Alex Rodriguez." LOFL!
    • Interesting that he and Gibson both crashed at the end of last year. I wonder if somebody found something correctable that caused the crash. 
    • Over the past couple of years I have vacillated between believing in Hall and not believing in him. I currently believe he has the ability to be a bullpen stud, but I really want him to be a starter. It feels like we always get these flamethrowing lefties that a team like the Rays would have no problem turning into their next ace, but they always end up in the bullpen here. That's not even a criticism of our development, really, I'm just complaining about our luck. The sample size of pitchers like Hall are tiny after all. Anyway, furthering my annoyance about Hall is just that I fail to see what the organization's plan is with the kid. Do they know? It seemed like one of the only things Elias and Development Squad weren't sure about last year. But maybe it just seemed that way from the outside. Obviously they have a plan.  There's no room for him on the roster, though, barring injuries. So after all of Elias' talk last year about Hall being so close and the organization "depending" on him, etc... is he really just going back to AAA again? On the one hand, you can't really argue with it. His AAA numbers were pretty weak. On the other hand, it seems kind of brutal to give him the yo-yo last season and then stick him right back in Norfolk.  Clearly the organization believes in him or they wouldn't put out a little documentary. So what's the plan exactly? 
    • This thread is something.  Jorge Mateo has little value anywhere because he can't hit.  Whether he's here, or not here, has little to do with the success of our 2023 season.  Any return in trade will be minimal.  Let's go another 15 pages though!
    • And there is no guarantee that Mateo will come close to that again either.  Or even get close.  If his bat doesn't improve he's likely not playing as much, and therefore not acquiring WAR.  As to the rest, who knows how Ortiz will be in comparison.  All reports say that he is the best defensive prospect of our bunch.  Could he also play gold glove defense?  I don't know, but it doesn't seem outside the realm of possibilities either.  Overall I think too many around here overrate Mateo and sell Ortiz short.
