Trader Jim Resurfaces

Neither rain, nor wind, nor potential federal indictment will keep Jim Bowden from the public eye. ESPN Deportes is reporting (as best my feeble translation skills can tell) that Bowden has been spending time in the D.R. with fellow ex-Nat Jose Rijo. From the article:

"Rijo and Bowden are in discussions with officials from the Liga Dominicana to purchase a new expansion baseball team, the San Cristobal Pantalones de Cuero."

I assume the team will be based out of Rijo's newly vacant academy. No word on whether Carlos Alvarez has been tapped to manage, or if there's a handshake agreement to bring Dmitri Young on board this winter.

The San Cristobal Leatherpants? I'm thinking this has April Fools written all over it.

When has ESPN Deportes ever led us astray before?
