Just when you thought nothing could go wrong for the Marlins ace, he gets arrested early Friday morning on DUI charges in Miami.
Willis is the face of the Marlins franchise and has become an emerging star throughout baseball. He is one of the top left handed pitchers in the majors and is coming off of another productive season.
It's unfortunate that the soon to be 25 year old who has everything going for him had to commit such a foolish act. Under his attorney's advice he has not commented on the case, but as the days progress we should expect to hear a statement from the electrifying south paw.
I hope that this was only a minor bump in the road for Dontrelle Willis and that he will quickly return to the lovable pitcher that so many of us have become accustomed too.
