Alomar Sued in AIDS Scandal

Though this one has nothing to do with anything on the field. According to a report in the New York Daily News, former Orioles, Indians, Mets, Blue Jays, Padres and White Sox second baseman Roberto Alomar is being sued by his ex-girlfriend, who claims he insisted on continuing to have unprotected sex with her despite being afflicted with full-blown AIDS.

Amazing, the plaintiff -- a 31-year-old Queens massage spa manager named Ilya Dali -- never contracted the disease, but is suing for emotional distress and the danger Alomar posed to her two children while the couple lived together for two years.

Naturally, Alomar's lawyer claims the suit is pernicious and full of falsehood, but it has a number of specific details and dates which may make it a little more believable. And after all the steroid revelations, would any baseball revelations surprise you right now?

This surprised me. AIDS is on a whole different level than these idiot 'roids heads who only harmed themselves (in theory). The circumstances in the linked article are quite shocking.

Sad to hear Alomar may be ill.

Sad to hear the allegations that are being made.

Sad to hear the horror that may have befelled Alomar as a young man.

Sad to hear the ex-girlfriend felt compelled to take these actions.

Whatever the truth, their is nothing but sadness here.

Alomar always has been rather generous in sharing his body fluids, hasn't he?

"I wonder what the ump that Alomar spit on his face is thinking right about now......."

Read the linked article and you'll at least know what he said that the Daily News could print.

The ump is John Hirschbeck , and he had this to say:

"You're telling me something I'm shocked at. I wish him nothing but the best."

And the article seems to suggest that Alomar contracted AIDS from two Mexican men who raped him when he was 17, nonof1.

Still, if he had unprotected sex while he was aware that he had AIDS, this should be a criminal prosecution, not a civil lawsuit. Still, it's hard to tell from the time frame that this is the case.

But where's the payday in bringing a criminal complaint over a civil one?

Even if everything she is claiming is true, this is a weak case. The biggest problem with is that there is no real injury. The emotional distress claim is totally bogus, she was well aware he may have been ill yet continued to have unprotected sex until, according to her complaint, she knew he had full blown AIDS.

If her children's well being was such a concern, she should have insisted on him getting tested before they had unprotected sex. He's an ex-pro athlete, aka women threw themselves at him for years, aka he's a risk candidate for an STD.
