Jose Offerman has really done well since his MLB playing days have been over. By which I mean not only does he attack players with a bat, he punches an umpire when arguing calls.
It may be a little bit of an understatement, but Jose Offerman should probably get some help on his anger issues, if he hasn't already.
If you remember, two years ago, Offerman was arrested for assault after beating up pitcher Matt Beech, and catcher John Nathans with his bat. As a result of that, in February 2009, Nathans sued Offerman in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport, seeking $4.8 million in damages.
Now, Offerman is a manager of the Licey Tigers, so he couldn't possibly run into another incident like that one, right? Wrong. Yesterday, after his catcher was thrown out for arguing balls and strikes, Offerman went to "discuss" things with first base umpire, Daniel Rayburn. Offerman struck Rayburn in either the head or neck, who then fell to the ground. Offerman was detained by stadium security, eventually being transported to the local police station to await the end of the game and Rayburn's decision whether to ask for charges to be pressed against him or not.
Now, the video shows you the punch (at the 0:46 mark), and in all honesty, it looks like a total flop on Rayburn's part, or he simply fell over along with it, but a thrown punch is still a thrown punch. Jose Offerman deserves whatever punishment he gets, as his anger problems shown in both of these circumstances, aren't acceptable in any way - banished from any organized baseball sounds about perfect to me.
