It is possible to both condemn domestic violence and give an alleged abuser another chance, if the conditions are right (he is contrite, is willing to speak out against DV, etc). I confess I haven't followed the story all that much and don't even know if he was ever convicted. Or if he is even producing in mlb at a level where he could help. I supervise a team that helps vulnerable homeless. One of my very best staff did time for opiate sales and is a recovering heroin addict. Shelters are full of folks with records because they can't find work and landlords won't rent to them in a tight market. I realize his story is different in that we're talking about a privileged few who get paid a ton of dinero to play a sport. I'm still interested in knowing the facts and am open to giving the guy another chance. That wouldn't necessarily be the reason I would pass. Lack of production or overall team plan fit would. And I don't know much about his production. I do enjoy a good cigar. And wind-up toys.
