Just Socorro haha. woo!
JUTEP ya du**y. Get over it. El Paso is and has been on the map for quite some time. Try to do a little research before you speak outta your A...On a high note...Sad to say how a team can go from winning a STATE title to not even making the playoffs the following season. Anyway not hating but just noting the truth. Don't want to dwell on old news like the kids from the State Title TEAM were not even from Socorro area but just wanted to remind you real quick. Oh and by the way, by your notes, it seems that you are hating on Montwood a little bit. Com'n buddy get over it. If my mind serves me right, they have split a couple of games with Socorro the last couple of years. Now going back to the subject on hand....Omar keep your head up and keep the dream alive buddy. Good luck and God Bless

All you haters out there, shut your mouths!!! You don't see the hard work, the discipline that Omar and all the other athletes put in. Socotown is about hard working people and Omar is an example. Y'all wish you could be him, collect the paycheck he does, and everything else that he has been blessed with. You read all the headlines but don't know the truth and neither do the reporters reporting. Ask the person who titled this "suspended for drugs" and I bet he doesn't know the name of the "over-the-counter" product that Omar took. Read the list of substances banned by the minor leagues and your probably consuming 1 or 2 of those substances so you can make it to the office job you hate so much. Don't hate the player, hate the game for making today's athlete do anything it takes to perform to make all the white owners rich...Chale con todos estos putos!! I got my boy's back!!!

he is from Socorro what do you expect. most of them are either dads by senior year drug dealers or drunks. and they end up playing at the plex
Can you offer proof? How about names? Nope, its much easier to sit in your soiled underwear on that rusted folding chair in front of the computer spitting out stupidity.
You're every bit as ignorant as Omar.

Yeah I agree with Jutep here. So many people seem to judge situations too quick and can't control their emotions or thoughts. I think it funny how the writer of this article purposely put "former Socorro grad" instead of former "Rockies player" or whatever. Seems he/ she is instigating but most people like garbage talk anyway. Its ridiculous how many people out there have spite against Socorro. Probably just lallygagging bench warmers that played baseball and lost to the best baseball team El Paso had/ has. Maybe these same clowns can join the circus at least they can make a living there and not hate on others for making a living many ball players only dream of.: >

Which one are you? Let me guess, you were too good to play any sports and just harangued your kids into playing, right? You don't know spit about people from Socorro, just like I don't know spit about you. There are many excellent hard-working people and quite a few of them are earning recognition for the efforts they put in, both at school and on the athletic field.
Don't talk what you don't know.
you are just in denial hahahaha

Bottom lime to all of this is, he got caught. He was suspended and now let's move on. How many times have all of us made mistakes in the past? If you think for a minute that everyone is perfect, you have another thing coming and it's coming hard at you. Besides, are any of you negative people familiar with the "drug" he used? Do your homework people.

Oh and before the ones that have way TOO much time on their hands, I know I made a mistake when I said "lime" I meant LINE. it doesn't mean that I'm ignorant, it just means I'm confident in what I'm saying and that I'm using a phone to type this up.

Omar is going to be just fine, what he has done for the Latino community thus far in his career is awesome. The sky is the limit for this guy. The choice os his
