Former Major Leaguer's Mother Kidnapped

Former MLB pitcher Victor Zambrano's mother was kidnapped in Venezuela last week.  She's not the first relative of an athlete to be targeted in her country.  It seems to happen a lot there.  This story is from November 9th, so there's no word on if she's been returned or what her current status is.  I wish I knew.  Earlier this year, Rockies' catcher Yorvit Torrealba's son and brother in law were captured, but returned safe and sound.
