The homeowner is no saint. Turns out he's the one who stole Nix's prospect status a couple years ago.

do you have a reference for this?  what are you talking about here?

I laughed

Me too😂😂😂

I felt really bad. What a stupid way to ruin your life. Who knows what the Padres will do. To think that you wanted to be a big league ball player and you are "this close," and you do something that stupid. Wow.

There's no cure for stupid. How sad.

The reality is that this probably won't affect him much career wise nor should it. He will be fined and put on probation (hopefully with alcohol conditions). If this was an isolated incident re the level of intox fine. If it's not get him some help.  Best thing the Pads can do for him and Cosgrove is to get them in with a psych who specializes in subs abuse to screen them both.  Young enough to take an off ramp and still have a bright future.

Right. They haven't died of an overdose of fentanyl.....yet. They still have time to recover. But they need serious intervention. If we did what they did we would be looking at possible prison time. They will undoubtedly get another chance. The Padres need to make sure that they do not waste it.

At the end of the day, it’s a story about two 23 year olds drinking too much. Not a big deal in my book. I’m happy nobody is seriously hurt and hopefully the embarrassment will lead to growth. I like Nix. He’s a competitive kid and he mixes up his pitches well. I think he has a future as a ML starter.

Quite true. It's typical juvenile behavior. So he still has some growing up to do. Don't we all. At least he gave me something to laugh at. I wish the homeowner could have gotten it all on video. I have never actually been very high on Nix. Maybe being tased will be what turns him into a superhero. Now his fastball may be coming in at 110. We can dream.

Padres should DFA his ass.. That roster spot should go to the next best young man whobia serious about his career.. And I don't care if NIX is the next CY... Such a message will have more value throughout the organization from a culture and expectations point of view..  It would be a bold move cause he still somewhat of a top 10-20 prospect ..but long term could serve us well.. And just watch that 30 something ranked prospect who is saved from rule V make something of himself to finish that + Karma that baseball always seems to bring with it when things like this happen
