Does no one in the sports world have a cell phone? I swear it seems as if more players are caught drunk driving than scoring touchdowns or stealing bases.

From the Kansas City Star:

Royals utility player arrested for DUI

A Kansas City Royals infielder spent more than seven hours in jail today after he was arrested for driving under the influence.

Campus police for the University of Missouri-Kansas City stopped Alberto J. Callaspo, 25, about 3 a.m. after he allegedly ran a red light near E. 48th and Oak streets, just north of the campus. The officer booked Callaspo into the jail at Kansas City police headquarters downtown about 4:30 a.m.

Callaspo appeared before a municipal judge via video camera about 10:10 a.m., and the judge granted him a signature bond. He was released just before noon.

Additional details about the arrest were not available because the UMKC police report was not completed.

The Royals obtained Callaspo last winter from the Diamondbacks in exchange for pitcher Billy Buckner. The Royals website said he has filled in at second base and shortstop and has a batting average of .290.

In Other Places

Sorry about my lengthy absence but it could not be helped. Enough about that.

I have managed to keep up (mostly) with my work on which has some great stuff posted lately. Check out my latest articles here as well as my contributions to the Fantasy Football Team Previews with the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions. Next week I'll have a New England Patriots Preview up on the site.
