Former Twins pitcher arrested on robbery charges

Another sports star has gone astray. This time it's Jeff Reardon, a former relief pitcher for the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, and the Montreal Expos.

Those bloggers with the Northern Alliance won't be happy when they hear this news.

From AP:

Jeff Reardon, one of the top relief pitchers in history, blamed medication for depression after his arrest for a jewelry store robbery.

Police said Tuesday that the 50-year-old Reardon, retired since 1994 and sixth in career saves, walked into Hamilton Jewelers at the Gardens Mall (Florida) on Monday and handed an employee a note saying he had a gun and the store was being robbed.
