08:29 PM ET 04.08 | Jose Valverde is late for work. Apparently he is stuck at the border. For us here in Michigan, it is a common occurance to get held up at the border. When that happens to us is not news. When you are the controversial former major league closer and your boss is the Detroit Tigers, everyone notices. The Detroit News is reporting that Jose Valverde's arrival in Lakeland, Fla., will be delayed because of a passport issue. Jose Valverde is a native of the Dominican Republic. This happened to another Jose in Detroit this year. Earlier in the basketball season, the Detroit Pistons acquired Jose Calderon in a trade with the Toronto Raptors. Visa issues kept him from playing for about a week.
