Some fun lunchtime reading…

According to La Prensa, former Phillies pitcher Vicente Padilla has been arrested for failing to respond to a lawsuit asking for child support.

Translated, the report states:

The applicant…went to the local National Police and the Immigration office to report.

So now he may not be able to get a visa to come back to the United States.

Another report says the amount of child support Padilla is avoiding is just $4200.00.  Now, he may not be able to make Spring Training, and prove he should be paid $1.5 million by the Red Sox.  Makes sense to me…

What did the Red Sox see in him anyway?
