The Final Frontier For Danny Almonte?

From Deadspin: Danny Almonte, notorious for that Little League World Series scandal several years ago, has been released by the Southern Illinois Miners, the independent minor league team he'd been playing for this year.

Earlier this year when I heard about Almonte beginning his pro career in the Frontier League, I was happy for him and full of hope for his future. Contrary to what a lot of people seem to believe, I don't think that whole LLWS debacle was all his fault. What will happen to him now? All anyone can (and should) do is hope for the best.

It would be a great story to see him make it, but I like many others, have my doubts. Good luck to him.
