Sports gambler Parlay Patz is now under the microscope, facing criminal charges for the alleged threatening messages he sent last summer to members of the Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago White Sox.

And, considering how largely insignificant Tampa's July 20 loss to Chicago was to the general public, we can only image there are similar messages floating in the ether online to other parties from more prominent gambling losses.

In a disgusting display of barbarism, Patz threatens four members of the Tampa Bay Rays (as well as a singular White Sox player, for whatever reason), evoking specific violent imagery involving their close family members. He certainly does not hold back in the stream of messages in the way that, you know, a public figure who could succumb to consequences might do.

This particular White Sox-Rays game was won by the road team, the Sox, who scored one in the ninth and one in the 11th (off reliever Chaz Roe) for a 2-1 victory.

Per reports, Roe is one of the players threatened by Patz, in an increasingly vile set of messages. He also appears to have targeted Freddy Galvis, then of the Blue Jays, invoking racial slurs in the process, as well as several Atlanta Braves players and their families.

Hideous behavior from the 23-year-old Patz, and a harsh reminder for young sports fans to better choose their icons.
