This news is over a day old now but some details have emerged...

http://hardballtalk....of-wilson-ramos

- Ramos signed an autograph for a young fan who had been playing stickball just before the kidnappers pulled up.

- An orange 2007 Chevrolet Captiva was the primary vehicle used in the kidnapping, but another truck was also involved. The Chevy had no plates and the windows were heavily tinted.

- Two men, with their faces uncovered, got out of the truck and approached Ramos. One wrapped his arm around the 24-year-old’s neck and pressed a 9mm pistol against his head.

- Ramos was with his father Abraham, his brother David, and a cousin. He was the only one taken.

Hopefully he is returned safely, real scary situation.

Venezuela is really crazy. I remember the Mets took Josh Thole out of winter ball last year for fear of these kind of things. It really is scary.

Hopefully Ramos is returned safely, this is awful to hear.

It's either $$ driven or pissed off family driven. Hopefully they just want some loot.

I'd say its probably $ driven, but the fact they haven't made contact with the family demanding any $ yet is pretty unsettling.
