Unfortunate for both of them. Manziel seems to be on the road to maturity one life-changing-career too late. (He's also being treated for bi-polar disorder, which explains a lot).

He is the Johnny Manzel of baseball

I wonder what happens in a situation where a player is eligible to report, but a team bars them

Isn't that the suspended list?
Quote
The main instance where it is used is when a player is suspended by the league as the result of an on-field incident, but it can also be initiated by the player's own club in the case of unacceptable behavior (such as a player getting into an altercation with his manager, a teammate, or a fan), or a violation of team rules related to chronic tardiness, possession of alcohol or reporting to work intoxicated, missing a doctor's appointment, et al. The Suspended List is used more liberally in the minor leagues, mainly because minor league players don't have the protection of a union.

I thought it referred to players suspended by the league. Sucks to be a minor leaguer, work conditions that would be illegal without a union that are ok because they were negotiated by a union that minor leaguers just happen to be ineligible to join

Huh?  That makes no sense...

And ask any of those guys if they'd rather be playing baseball or working at Popeye's...

Sounds like he missed curfew repeatedly. (Where did I read that? Maybe here??)

They make like $1100 a month. And that’s only the six months they play. They don’t get paid for spring training or for off season workouts. This also doesn’t include any allowance for housing.

They certainly have the option to walk away, but let’s not pretend these guys aren’t being exploited by billionaires.

They would certainly make more money and have more workplace protections working at Popeye’s

That's the latest I can find about him. Seems he must do some things at home, in Houston, before being allowed to re-join the team.

Gotta wonder if this is substance abuse related.

I checked Twitter, sad story, he was killed in a staged mugging after having leaked a bunch of emails.

The Nationals entire bonus pool was $5.5 million.
Seth Romero got $2.8 million of that - more than half.
Tenth rounder Trey Turner got $100K.

The minors are full of players who got little to no bonus.

Call him up to the majors and tell him if he makes one mistake he's on his arse and sent packing.

My guess is he'll be more motivated after he exhausts his $2.8 million signing bonus.

So we'll see him June 15th or so.

Bingo.

Does baseball still have the rule where a player has to accrue 90 days service in a full season league before any service time starts?

I am a positive guy so I am all in on Seth and very happy to see that he is reporting to Hagerstown. I made mistakes when I was young too, so I wish him nothing but the best. He is an immense talent so if he can keep his head on straight he will be a key in our future.

Can't wait to see the young man on the mound.
