Ugueth Sentenced Wednesday


Remember that psycho free agent pitcher Ugueth Urbina? He was sentenced to 14 years in prison for the attempted murder of five workers on his family's ranch on Wednesday.

He was also found guilty of illegal deprivation of liberty and taking justice into his own hands during an argument over a gun on Oct. 16, 2005.

The 32-year-old was accused of joining a group of men in attacking and injuring workers with machetes and pouring gasoline on them at his family's ranch, about 25 miles south of Caracas.

Urbina has repeatedly denied involvement with the attack, claiming he was asleep at the time.

As a two-time All-Star, Urbina last pitched in the big leagues with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2005. He's 30th on the all-time saves list with 237 and had two saves in the 2003 World Series for the winning Florida Marlins.
