This Eastbound and Down reboot sounds promising.

Fraudulent pastor seems a bit repetitive.

When he left the Cubs I assumed she was banging someone else on the team.

That's too bad for Zobrist. I always liked him when he was with the Rays and was happy he got a ring.

And if she lied in a written statement during the divorce about the affair... I'd make sure she left with nothing.

Let's see:  hot blonde married to athlete, check.  Athlete makes really good money, check.  Loud and proud Christianity, check.  Skeevy "pastor", check.  Yep, all of the stereotypical boxes are checked.  Zobrist isn't the first, he won't be the last.  And yes, I do not know anything about their private life.  He could have been hell to live with, unreconcilable differences, blah blah blah.  She enjoyed the fruits of his labor, cloaked herself in the flag of Jesus, and stepped out with the man who was counseling their marriage, counseling her husband, and counseling her.  That's all kinds of farked up.  Gold diggers gonna dig.

I'll echo a previous statement, in that I also thought it was with a teammate.  Thankfully not.  That we know of.

These "Loud and Proud Christians" get a heaping dose of Karma in their lives, don't they?

I knew she was up to something. My wife was calling her dragon lady pretty much from the get-go. She seemed to be using his career to build her own "singing career" such that it was, in christian music, going so far as to have her sing before games. Seems like Ben was the family-type guy who just wanted to try to keep them together, all the while that biatch was screwing him over right and left. Hope she gets nothing.

/Not fond of her

Still a mile better than in Catholicism. You think this pastor could join Falwell's group?

She's just.....weird.

Big Ben Zobrist fan...his addition to the 2015 Royals mid season definitely drove them to the series. He was a class act and nice guy(from what we saw). Sad to have seen him leave after the season to go to Chicago.

It's looking more and more like pastors do not do more than lay people.

The Pastor allegedly told Ben Z to give his wife "more space" to make the marriage work. Then he started banging her. Probably told her "if he gives you too much space its a natural urge to want more companionship"
All the while Ben Z was paying this pastor thousands of dollars a month and donating millions to that church.
Also pastor allegedly defrauded Ben's charity, which is of course a felony.
If ANY of this is true, Pastor deserves every heap of justice coming his way.

IIRC, Ben once said his reason for going to the Cubs was because his wife decided they wanted to play for them at that point.

I'm sure it was a money thing. He was a free agent and the Royals are not competing with the Cubs.

Since when do fake pastors need a slump buster?

Sandberg heard the snickers on the field. Zobrist is gonna hear em in church.
