    Seth Romero sent home from Nats camp

    Guess he never learned from his college days.

    So many of these guys are still learning to be adults.

    Yeah, but given Romero's ugly history and the Nationals still handed him north of a million, I'm sure they aren't too happy.

    Exactly what club policies did he violate?

    The article mentioned he was suspended twice by the University of Houston and goes on further to say "Washington normally avoids players with such concerns" but fails to mention why he was suspended and what these "concerns" are.

    I'd like to know if these were simply youthful indiscretions that can be fixed as he matures or more along the lines of acts of racism/bigotry/violence, or in other words, long-term behavioral issues that will continue and likely keep him from reaching the majors.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    They didn't say, which leads me to believe it was mouthing off to a coach or something.

    Some clarification via Nationals beat writer on Twitter:


    @chelsea_janes


    Seth Romero didn’t fail a drug test or run into external trouble, according to person familiar. Sent home because of missteps in camp, not conducting himself according to outlined expectations.

    From my understanding his two suspensions at U of H were, the first time was conditioning issues and the second time was multiple violations capped off with a social media pic of him holding a bong.

    Jon Heyman reports it's a "curfew-related violation".
