Yeah, I don't know who's to blame for the visa issues and why it can't get resolved before ST, but it seems like it's always an issue.

and all the players who are going to miss time because of visa issues are competing for spots, so it'd seem of greater importance for themselves that they don't have these issues.

Guerra, Quijada, and Rivera are competing for spots in the pen.

You would think they get those players here early. Maybe have some sort of training facility, if MLB would allow that. I do not know how visas work.

The biggest news for me was from OC Register's @Jeff Fletcher report from Joe Maddon on Shoehi Ohtani.  “He was showing velocity numbers, and it’s hard to show 95-plus in a workout,” the Angels m

Yep!  Man, I'm doing my best not to get excited by this "news," but it's hard not to, given what was said.  If I were Maddon (or anyone else associated with the Angels), I'd probably underplay anythin

Ohtani is going to pitch Thursday or Friday, according to Joe Maddon.    Works for me. I have great seats for both games.

Has anyone ever been on the side of helping someone obtain a Visa?  It's absurdly complex and typically involves multiple attorneys as well as the timelines and staffing of multiple government agencies.  Plus the every changing landscape of how to navigate the process. 

Do you think that some of these guys are sitting around playing video games and then is suddenly dawns on them that they need a visa?   

And the route for professional athletes is way less complicated than for others.

Wasn't it Heaney who was one of the guys that sold part of his future earnings for an immediate payout with Fantex?

Looked it up: yes, it was  -- 10% of all future MLB salary earnings.

I just read about it....crazy concept.

I don't doubt it is a convoluted process involving many involved parties.  I don't think it is a player problem, I am just baffled why it seems to always be a problem.  Apparently, it is not a major enough problem to solve.

Why worry about Visa's?  Just join a caravan from Honduras  and cross the border illegally and claim asylum.  They would let him stay permanently.
