Melissa Segura: Economic considerations at heart of Carmona's decision

By now, the Fausto Carmona and player-to-be-named-later jokes have been told and the pitcher's mug shot has circulated around the web yet questions still remain. Carmona, the Cleveland Indians pitcher who was released from custody on Friday in his native Dominican Republic, had been arrested on Thursday for using a false identity. Police say Carmona's real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia and that he is 31, three years older than his age listed by major league baseball. Was it right, if the allegations prove true, for Carmona to mislead the team into signing him in 2000 when they thought was 17? Of course not. Ethical? No way. But economically rational? Absolutely.
