Rays Notes: Matt Bush Accepts Plea Deal

It was terrible a few months ago to hear what now ex-Rays player Matt Bush did, driving drunk under a suspended license, seriously injuring a 72 year old man in the process. Justice is finally being served as Bush has accepted a plea deal that will keep him behind bars for at least three years. Bush is also being sued by the family of the man for 5 million dollars in damages. Continuing ramifications for the Rays are that outfielder Brandon Guyer, who loaned his car to Bush not knowing his license was suspended, is also involved in the suit. This whole situation is just really depressing and it’s unbelievable that Bush did something like that.
