A connected set of stories, offered without comment.

Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was arrested early Saturday morning in Nebraska for driving under the influence of alcohol, the state patrol said.

Angels rookie Nick Adenhart scattered seven hits over six scoreless innings and escaped a pair of bases-loaded jams. He struck out five and walked three in his fourth major league start..."I battled early and it felt good to get out of some jams," Adenhart said. "The first time I came in on Suzuki with a fastball and jammed him pretty good. The second time it was just a fastball down and away that I got him to roll over on."

Nick Adenhart was a passenger in a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse that was broadsided in an intersection about 12:30 a.m. by a minivan that apparently ran a red light, police said...The minivan driver fled the crash on foot and was captured about 30 minutes later. Police identified him ...and said he had a suspended license because of a previous drunken driving conviction. Preliminary results indicated Gallo's blood-alcohol level was "substantially over the legal limit" of .08 percent, police Lt. Kevin Hamilton said.

OK. One comment.

It's pretty easy to imagine that Major League Baseball will honor Adenhart, maybe with some patch which his name or number that everyone will wear. And if they do that, Joba Chamberlain will take the mound with it on.

And that is sickening.
