Former Cubs Pitcher Sergio Mitre Sentenced to 40-60 Years for Killing His Stepdaughter

Chicago Cubs

I don’t even know what to say about this news, because it’s gotta be gut-wrenching for the victim’s family, and that’s where the focus is. But our only context for the news is that it involves a former Cubs pitcher and that is what leaves me stunned.

Stunned, and horrified:

The story is unspeakably horrible, and Mitre will likely – and deservedly – spend the rest of his life in prison. Throw away the key.

Mitre, 40, came up through the Cubs’ farm system in the early 2000s, and debuted as part of the 2003 team. He got some run as a swing man in 2004 and 2005, but wasn’t particularly good, and was ultimately dealt to the Marlins as part of the Juan Pierre trade. Now he can forever be scrubbed from our memories as having any part of that era.
