Eric DuBose, a longshot-ish candidate for the fifth spot in the rotation, was arrested in Sarasota County last night, charged with a DUI and released on $500 bond.
DuBose, 29 in May, was 4-6 with a 6.39 ERA in 14 starts last year, giving up plenty of hits with about a 1:1 K:BB ratio. This has nothing to do with the DUI, I have no real opinion on that, but man was he awful last year.
This spring, DuBose is 1-0 with a 5.63 ERA in eight innings. He's made three appearances and one start.
We're currently being absolutely bombed by Tampa Bay. It's 10-0 in the top of the eighth, Tampa has 15 hits and both Alex Gonzalez and Toby Hall took Ponson deep in the second inning. Luis Ordaz just went yard off of Witasick. I think we can probably chalk the loss up and not look foolish after the amazing comeback.
