Vin Baker signs in Venezuela
June 19th, 2009 Marinos De Anzoategui signo ex estrella de la NBA Vincenzo Panadero.

Marinos reiniciará sus entrenamientos mañana en la noche. La franquicia aguarda por el ala-pivot Héctor Romero, quien está en fase de rehabilitación por un desgarro en el muslo derecho. Será sometido a una ecografía y dependiendo del resultado se sabrá si podrá unirse o no al cinco naval, que conserva en la reserva al ex NBA Vin Baker.

“Llegó fuera de forma y por ello no lo probamos”.

Always-amusing crude online translation:

Marine restarted their training tomorrow night. The franchise is looking for the wing-pivot Hector Romero, who is undergoing rehabilitation for a tear in his right thigh. Shall undergo an ultrasound and to the outcome will be known whether or not you can join the five ships, which kept in reserve to former NBA Vin Baker.

“He arrived out of shape and why they did not try.”

Does this mean that Hector Romero is out of shape, or that Vin Baker is? I don’t know, because I don’t speak Spanish. (Except for the words “horse”, “donkey”, “milk”, “hello beautiful lady”, “butter”, “oil” and “exit”. So far, I’ve found that this gets me everything I’ve ever needed in Spain.)

But there’s evidence that it’s the latter. Vin Baker had a trial in China earlier this season, but was released after a few days because he was out of shape. This counts against him.

    I'm glad to see that your Spanish ir reaching brilliant levels.

    That being said, I'm a native Spanish speaker and even I am unsure of which player arrived out of shape. That's some shitty journalism skills in action there.

    I guess it refers to Baker, since Romero seems to be still injured, not simply out of shape, but since there is no trace of contextualization for the sentence (unless we have to assume that it is about Baker because it is closer to his name. But that is really bad newswriting).
