We have to say, as far as free agents jockeying for leverage go, we're getting some excellent case studies in how not to handle one's self. Matt Lawton proved the "getting tested positive for steroids" theory of bargaining doesn't work, and now Ugueth Urbina is mastering the "being arrested for attempted murder" ploy.
Urbina, who had been investigated for his part in a machete maiming and torture incident, has been formally charged with attempted murder by Venezuelan police. He has insisted that he had little to do with the actual incident, which is a good angle to take. Because we have to say, were we charged with attempted murder anywhere, we'd probably prefer it not be in Venezuela. Even if we were a local hero. Just our preference.
