Say It Ain't So, Chili!

Remember Chili Davis, the '91 Twin who also played for several other teams, including the Angels and Yankees? Apparently, he's up to no good these days, according to Randball:

Remember your fondness for the í91 Twins and how it kind of died a little when the Kirby Puckett revelations hit the media? Yeah, this next part isnít going to help. Over to you, Arizona Republic:

As she waited in court for a jury to come back with a verdict, Tina Placourakis flashed back to the worst day of her life.

That was the day the man she loved attacked her while she was taking a shower, she said. There, in the place she should have felt safest, he knocked her to the floor and held her for seven hours, sometimes with a foot on her neck.

As she shivered on the tile, naked and curled in a fetal position, he spit tobacco chew on her, urinated in the drain next to her and humiliated her until he got what he wanted, which was for her to sign over the title of her car to him.

The him, of course, is Chili Davis. He was found guilty of assault and battery in civil court and ordered to pay $350,000 in damages. Happy Friday, everyone!

I used to think it was cool when Chili would strike out and then break the bat over his knee, but apparently he's found less-healthy outlets for his anger.
