I'd want to find the kid that got the autograph before the thugs showed up at the Ramos residence. Innocent until proven guilty, but it would be interesting to find out if he had any connection to it (paid to confirm that this was the house they wanted, or was the kid a lucky fan who was unaware of what was about to happen).
Vigils are being held at sporting events and college campuses across Venezuela, all demanding Wilson's release. Even the national papers are pleading with the kidnappers to let Wilson go.
Police have just been given confirmation that Wilson Ramos is still alive. I didn't see any info on line about his receiving a signing bonus. He made the league minimum of $415,000 this past year - not a huge sum when you figure on taxes and living expenses in the U.S. and Venezuela. BUT he lives in a crime ridden city where people have no problem breaking into houses while the family is home, assaulting them, and tying them up just to score some cash. So the amount of cash probably doesn't matter too much to these thieves.
Sending out big prayers for him and his loved ones.
I'm from the Tim Lincecum (Giants) forum and just wanted to add my thoughts and prayers to the efforts to get Wilson home safely. All of us on the Lincecum Girlfriend forum are with you at this frightening time.
