We are not experts in legal matters — we leave this to Deadspin LLP — but we'd have to think Jose Offerman is gonna have a difficult time convincing a jury that he didn't attack a minor league pitcher with a bat. But what do we know? Maybe he'll use the "I thought I saw a mosquito" excuse.
Yes, Offerman has pleaded not guilty in his August attack. His lawyer's explanation: "Offerman's attorney Frank Riccio has said he does not believe his client struck the players with a bat." Oh. OK.
We remind everyone to check out the slideshow, considering there is no video. We think Offerman's case is incredibly strong.
