Personal favorites that I wrote
Braves will give Spiezio another shot
2008-03-31 21:57
by Bob Timmermann

Scott Spiezio, who was cut by the St. Louis Cardinals in spring training after news of a December 30 arrest in Irvine, California for DUI, hit and run, and aggravated assault, has signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves.

“There’s been a change in personality, a change in attitude,” Braves general manager Frank Wren said. “He is sincerely sorry for everything that happened. I think he’s committed to making amends and making a change.”


Spiezio, in a statement released by the Braves, expressed remorse for his actions.

“I am very embarrassed and sorry for what happened in the offseason,” he said. “I have taken steps, including treatment, to ensure it will not happen again. I have taken full responsibility and I am making restitution to the people I have hurt. I am very appreciative of the second chance I’ve been given. The Braves have made no promises to me, except to give me the opportunity to prove that I have made amends and that I can still perform at this level.”

I wouldn't have signed him until he expressed equal remorse for that stupid red goatee.
