Ex-Met Burgos Jailed for 9 Months, So Far
What's worse than being a Mets reliever? Being an ex-Mets reliever! Ambiorix Burgos is going to jail for nine months for beating up his girlfriend. Apparently he became enraged when she tried to leave the Queens hotel room in which the incident took place to register her daughter for school. (His alleged statement to her at the time: "The police won't do anything to me. I am a baseball player.") When he gets out, he still has to face charges of killing two women in the Dominican Republic with his car. We know Mets relievers have problems with control, but damn. Burgos was released by the Mets in December.
