Delay is not denial, CarGo publicists insists
Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will travel from Venezuela to Denver on Sunday, rather than Wednesday as previously announced, according to tweets from his publicists. The tweets say he will receive the visa on Wednesday. But there has been no change in his plan to take a physical and make official the seven-year, $80 million contract he has agreed to with the Rockies.
Travel delays or last-minute logistical changes are no big deal. If you recall, players from Latin American countries often are delayed by visa issues when they try to make the trip to the U.S.
