DC's Nationals catcher kidnapped in Venezuela

Well, there are news that you cannot escape even in vacation, even if you do not care much about baseball.   Home for the winter Venezuelan league, Wilson Ramos catcher of the DC team, has been spectacularly kidnapped in his own Venezuelan home in the middle of his family and friends!

Talk about a way to bring out the reality of Venezuela crime in the US, even if we are talking of a rookie player!

    I am a Nats fan and I pray for Ramos safe return. This is high profile in both the US and Vzla. It hits home for fans in both places.

    How will Chavez explain this?

    He has been "rescued".....I think it was all a set up. No way that they are that efficient. No way. All a staged kidnapping and now they can play the card of how efficiently they are fighting crime.

    Thats just my opinion.

    Yes, Snook72. I thought the same thing, just did not want to say so.
    Note.Chavez said "there was a fight-but noone was hurt."Chavez then added "You know how much we care about human life."
    ie.Chavez-all good-even wants to protect the kidnappers.Unbelievable.
