The guy was actually pretty good at one point. He made over $40m playing baseball - he must have blown it all on stupid shit.




Ex-Yankees pitcher busted as alleged drug kingpin



Journeyman starting pitcher Esteban Loaiza was arrested Friday in San Diego with over 20 kilograms of cocaine and/or heroin, according to police documents. That translates to over 44 pounds of heavy drugs.

Loaiza is being held in South Bay Detention Facility on $200,000 bail. His next court hearing is Wednesday. According to online records, Loaiza was arrested at 6 p.m. Pacific time Friday, and also is facing felony charges of possessing and transporting a controlled substance with intent to sell.

Loaiza spent 14 seasons in the major leagues, including a brief stint in 2004 with the Yankees. The 46-year-old Mexico native also pitched for the Pirates, Blue Jays, White Sox, Nationals, Athletics and Dodgers, and went 126-144 in his career.

A two-time All-Star and the second-winningest Mexican pitcher in MLB history after Fernando Valenzuela, he finished second in the American League Cy Young voting in 2003 ? the year he started the All-Star Game ? and earned $43.7 million as a pro.

As recently as a few weeks ago, Loaiza was seen at Sox Fest in Chicago greeting fans and signing autographs. Loaiza also is known for appearing on the reality show ?I Love Jenni,? which starred his then-wife, singer Jenni Rivera. She died in a 2012 plane crash as the two were in the process of getting divorced.

He?s run into trouble with the law before. In 2006, while he played for the Athletics, he was arrested for speeding.
