BA has an extended article on the Esmailyn Gonzalez affair. It's not limited to subscribers.
It's worth a read because it makes clear just what a minefield the Dominican is, even now after all the efforts to crack down following Agegate and 9/11. It's made me completely rethink my reservations about the Pirates' reluctance to shell out seven-figures bonuses. When you add in the fact that it's virtually impossible to project what kind of player a 16-year-old will be, to say nothing of a 16-year-old who's grown up in poverty with poor nutrition and little coaching, I can understand Rene Gayo's view that it's better to spread the bonus money around.
