Ex-Yank 5-tool superprospect Jose Tabata, 20, Shocked -- SHOCKED! -- by Alleged Antics of 43-year-old Wife

We traded this story to the Pirates.

Pirates prospect Jose Tabata is not involved in any wrongdoing in a bizarre case in which his much-older wife is charged with abducting a 2-month-old baby girl from a Florida couple, police told the team. Tabata, a 20-year-old outfielder who is one of the Pirates' top minor leaguers, said in a statement Wednesday that he is "hurt, frustrated, and confused" that his 43-year-old wife, Amalia Tabata Pereira, is accused of taking the girl from a woman at a health clinic in Plant City, east of Tampa, on Monday.

No matter what Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte do, let’s never forget this. We dealt this headline to Pittsburgh.

You heard of salary dumps? This was a publicity dump.

As for the story, well, considering Alphonso's marriage to a 13-year-old, we at IIH have no right to judge the whimsical side of Jose Tabata or his Comedy Central family.

But we do note now and then how the national pastime has climbed into the hot tub with an incredibly ugly, evil and corrupt human exploitation machine down in Latin America.

We feel compelled to remind people that pimps masquerading as scouts buy 12-year-old boys, play Arod's cousin with fixer-elixers, knock four years off their ages and God knows what else... because MLB, under its $18 million a year commissioner, Bowie Selig, is too busy counting its money to care.

A 20-year-old star athlete with a 43-year-old Octomom-wife whose rap sheet looks like the halucination writings of Kurt Cobain. Something magical going on here, including the possibility that Jose Tabata is closer to age 40 than we thought.

We traded this baby to the Pirates.

Why do I feel we still own a piece?
