Invisible Player: Kendry Morales

As the Chronicles of the Lads notes, "debacles aplenty" plague the Angels heading into their Spring Opener tomorrow. But none more so than the disappearing act of newly signed Cuban defector Kendry Morales. The power-hitting first baseman/outfielder has had "visa troubles" and can not seem to get out of the Domenican Republic. Fingers are being pointed all over but generally in the direction of Morales' unnamed and unseen "lawyers". This begs the question, why have the Angels not sent a legal team down there to try and pry him out of the country? How complex an issue is this? Why do I keep envisioning Lionel Hutz as lead council for Morales?

Hutz: I move for a bad court thingy.
Judge Snyder [modeled on Robert Bork]: You mean a mistrial.
Hutz: Right!! That's why you're the judge and I'm the law-talking guy.
Judge: You mean the lawyer?
Hutz: Right.
