The saga of Jeff Allison just keeps going from bad to worst.
If you are interested in the all the sordid details of the accounts, please read the article. Suffice it to say, the Marlins have all but given up hope on the young man.
"We have retained his rights but he is not an active member of the organization," a Marlins official said. "He hasn't been for quite a while."
Asked if the Marlins have given up hope that Allison will ever pitch for them again, the official said, "You could probably say that."
In the time I have been blogging on FishStripes, this the third article I have written about the young Mr. Allison's struggles with life. I doubt that he will ever pitch again in the professional leagues and that really isn't important at this point. What is important is that he, somehow, someway, gets his life in order. Because the path that he seems determined to follow is one that is very self-destructive.
One can only hope that he will find a way to right the ship.
