 Alvarez\'s case tarnishing his reputation
posted 8 years ago

Tim Corbin, Vanderbilt's baseball coach, heard the news about Pirates draft pick Pedro Alvarez yesterday, and Corbin just felt sad, because he can envision how this plays out for the young man he coached. Alvarez will not be anywhere near a baseball field in the weeks ahead. He won't be preparing to play winter ball. He'll be preparing for arbitration, in a case that might be heard in the second week of September. He hasn't fielded one grounder as a professional ballplayer, hasn't swung at one batting practice pitch, and already he's in a legal fight with his prospective employers. In Pittsburgh, the city where he might or might not play some day, his character is already being dissected and diagnosed and destroyed, in the way that J.D. Drew's was in Philadelphia after he was drafted, after his negotiations went badly.
