Cleveland Indians Reactions: Fausto Carmona Arrested for Using False Identity

As you've probably heard by now, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Fausto Carmona was arrested in the Dominican Republic for using a false identity. It was revealed that he's actually 31 years old, not 28, and his real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia. Let's take a look at some of the reactions from around the web...
