The downward spiral of former no. 1 MLB draft pick Matt Bush hit a low point on June 28, 2009. He was viciously drunk. He had removed his belt, swung it at a passing car and crashed his vehicle when trying to flee the scene. A fleet of police arrived to arrest him. Hog-tied on the ground, Bush kicked, screamed and carried on like a toddler denied a toy. Nearly three years later Bush had shown enough promise through early spring training that he was a candidate for a call-up in 2012. The worst of the worst was in the past, Bush said. He was clean and sober and ready to play baseball. Today, Matt Bush is in jail. He is going to be there for a long time.
