Found April 16, 2013 on The Outside Corner:
Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo was arrested early this morning after being pulled over for driving drunk in Milwaukee. The All-Star pitcher was stopped at 2:10 a.m. for driving slowly on Interstate 94 and "deviating lanes" near Miller Park. After failing a field sobriety test, Gallardo blew a BAC of 0.22, almost three times Wisconsin's legal limit of 0.08.

The outrageously high BAC means Gallardo may be facing a couple other measures due to Wisconsin law, too -- he could have his license suspended for 6-9 months, and since he blew over a 0.15, an Ignition Interlock Device for his vehicle will be mandatory. With all that, Wisconsin s...

What The Heck Is Wrong With Yovani Gallardo

His improvements in walk rate in 2011 were excellent as he cut his BB% from 9.3 in 2010 to 6.8% in 2011. That 6.8% was the lowest mark of his career by a huge margin. Unfortunately he gave all of his...
