According to ESPN Milwaukee’s Drew Olson, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo was arrested early Monday morning for OWI.
Here’s the nuts and bolts from Olson’s report:
“Gallardo, a 27-year-old right-hander, was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near Miller Park when he was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. for driving slowly and deviating lanes. (Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Fran) McLaughlin said Gallardo failed a field sobriety test and later registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, nearly three times the legal limit in Wisconsin (.08).”
It’s obviously an incredibly irresponsible move on the part of Gallardo who, with the $30 million contract extension he signed in 2010, can clearly afford a cab ride home.
Yovani Gallardo was arrested for OWI Monday morning.
Gallardo will apparently receive $778.80 in citations combined for the OWI, the level of intoxication and deviating lanes. That’s just what the state of Wisconsin will assess for this kind of behavior.

Welcome into the Advanced Statistics Office.
Coming into the 2012 season, Yovani Gallardo was a big sleeper for me. 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...

On Tuesday, following his arrest for drunk driving, Yovani Gallardo briefly spoke to the media. He admitted he made a mistake, and that it was something he shouldn’t have done. Gallardo even went so far as to apologize to me – in the sense that he said he was sorry to Brewers fans and everyone else in the city, which obviously includes me.
Yovani Gallardo will have to pay for a poor decision made early Tuesday morning.
The Milwaukee Brewers’ No. 1 starter was charged with drunken driving after police said he registered a blood-alcohol level of .22, well over the legal limit in Wisconsin of .08, according to Drew Olson of ESPN Wisconsin.

I may have been operating for a while on a rather foolish assumption.
See, whenever a player has been caught driving while intoxicated -- like yesterday, after Yovani Gallardo was picked up with an almost impossible to believe .22 blood-alcohol level -- and the blogosphere/twitterati have piped up with their outrage over the deep moral inconsistency in baseball, I've joined...
