Dominican Republic -- Baltimore Orioles reliever Alfredo Simon surrendered to police Monday to face a murder charge in a fatal shooting New Year's Eve. His lawyer said he was firing celebratory shots in the air.

The Dominican pitcher is suspected of killing 25-year-old Michel Castillo Almonte and wounding his 17-year-old brother in the northeast coastal town of Luperon. The dead man is Simon's cousin, according to the player's lawyer.

If I was a MLB GM, I would make sure my relievers stayed in the states during the offseason, since they apparently have a bad habit of killing people.....

When the Dominicans on the Jays celebrate New Years at least they only blow up fireworks in their own face.
