NAGUA. - The Major League ballplayer Ambriorix Burgos, who’s been charged with the murder of two women, is again involved in an incident, this time a scene right out of the Wild West when the also professional, Felix - Gatico- Martinez accused him of trying to kill him.

Martinez accused Brugos of trying to murder him after they argued over a dominos game in a sidewalk bar.

He said that during the argument Burgos pulled out a pistol and tried to shoot him, but dodged him and fled quickly.

However, Martinez, of the Gigantes del Cibao (San Francisco), said he only managed to reach the town park when Burgos again tried to shoot him, and though bystanders took the gun away, “didn’t keep us from slugging it out at bare fists."

Burgos, a former pitcher for the New York Mets, is free on bail after he was accused of murder by the families of Angelys Matos and Josefina Minaya, who were run down by Burgos’ SUV late last year.

Unbelievable! This guy gets a one in a million chance in life and totally squanders it, while totally embarrassing himself, his family and his nation at same time. He is obviously a threat to society and should be locked away for time commensurate with his crime. Let's just hope that others will not soon imitate his abhorrent behaviour.

And the other idiot Franklyn Alemyda is trying to take 64,000 guns away. I guess this idiot has his permit up to date.

They forgot to mention he is also due in court in NYC for allegedly abusing his girlfriend while on the NY Mets.

the dominican authority it is not problem here
the real problem came from the new york mets team and his general manager Omar Minaya
who diden't take any responsability in that situation .

this baseball player is schedule to appear at the mets sprint traning at port st lucies floridas .

The last time I checked Omar Minaya was not the judicial enforcement in the DR. The Mets are not to blame here, they did not resign the player. The failure of the judicial system in the DR is the failure. The Mets did not pick up this fools contract. He is currently in Nagua killing, assaulting, and being a one eyed king.

The article says "former Met", I hope this means this jerk-off will never play MLB anywhere, ever again! and as he is no longer employed by a U.S. company, he should have his visa revoked immediatly ( after he serves his time for his domestic charges).

zak325, both your wishes will come true. this mutt will never play for a major league team in the usa again. no team could weather the adverse publicity if some sportswriter revealed that they signed him, knowing he murdered two women in a fit of rage. and , Uncle Sam probably will put a spoke in his visa. so, nagua better get used to him.

I just came back from Nagua and was wondering what ever happened to this guy and now I see this. Incedible stupidity. Dominican street justice is to take him out, so he better watch out back in Nagua.
