Mark DisGraceFul

Mark Grace may not be a current MLB player, but we're going to add him to the infamous list of douchebags to be arrested for a DUI this year anyway (mugshot seen to the right). The 46 year old former firstbase star of the Chicago Cubs and current Arizona Diamondbacks announcer was pulled over during the Memorial Day weekend and didn't pass the field tests. Stupid, stupid man. Mark Grace is disgraceful.

Other idiots from earlier this year...



Since the turn of the calendar year from 2010 to 2011, 6 MLB players have been arrested for DUI. That's bullshit! The Mariners Adam Kennedy, Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers, Austin Kearns of the Indians, the Oakland Athletics Coco Crisp, Derek Lowe of the Braves, and now Shin-Soo Choo of the Indians. C'mon fellas, seriously?!?!?!?!

Baseball-Reference.com lists their career earnings as follows: Kennedy- $19,427,500, Cabrera- $54,410,623, Kearns- $20,780,000, Crisp- $23,434,299, Lowe- $80,417,000, Choo- $1,271,800 (but got paid handsomely at $3.975M for this season). They have the money to do what the want, and one of those things should be hiring a f'n chauffeur, calling for a cab, or text a teammate to pick you up. Something, anything, but drive yourself while under the influence. I'm not pissed off that they drank to the point of inebriation, because that would be hypocritical of me. Nope, I'm pissed that they're stupid and selfish enough to put themselves and others in danger by operating a motor vehicle when it's simply not a necessity. Have we learned nothing from Nick Adenhart's tragic death or the saga of Jim Leyritz?

Lowe's charges were dropped.... His agent called the charges "totally unfounded." You can even watch the police video here http://atlanta.sbnation.com/atlanta-braves/2011/6/7/2212418/derek-lowe-dui-racing-video-police


I completely agree with the sentiment of the post. Driving drunk is stupid. stupid. stopid. Especially from guys like this who have every opportunity to make the right decision. Lowe shouldn't be grouped with these guys.
Innocent until proven guilty

That's nice Sean, but if you're drinking you shouldn't be driving.
