    I can't shake the feeling that Milwaukee really screwed the pooch on this one....

    Cub fans know a little something about the Cards' waiver action too. Remember Cairo? <_<

    Cards P cleared in shooting in Dominican Republic

    SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) -- Luis Martinez was released from police custody Tuesday after being cleared in a shooting that left a man hospitalized.

    The left-hander, claimed by St. Louis on Monday off waivers from Milwaukee, planned to leave the Dominican Republic by Wednesday for spring training in Jupiter, Fla.

    "I'm very happy that everything has been cleared up," Martinez said. "Now I'll try to continue with my personal life and baseball career."

    Prosecutors decided not to file charges after police concluded Martinez had shot the man twice in self-defense.

    "I was only defending my life," Martinez said. "I feel terribly bad that someone was injured."

    Martinez, 24, was detained Feb. 10, three days after shooting government tax worker Rafael Encarnacion Quezada during a traffic dispute in a hotel parking lot. Encarnacion, who had been carrying a gun, was in stable condition Tuesday at a hospital in the capital.

    Martinez was the Brewers' minor league pitcher of the year last season after going a combined 12-5 with a 2.13 ERA for Double-A Huntsville and Triple-A Indianapolis. He made his major league debut in September and went 0-3 with a 9.92 ERA in four starts for the Brewers.

    EDIT: And now I see that Trig already posted this.
