Matt Bush, 2004 no. 1 draft pick, to make comeback with the Texas Rangers

The no. 1 draft pick of 2004, Matt Bush, is making a comeback by popular demand ... well, sort of. In spring 2012, the pitcher was sentenced to 34 months in prison after driving under the influence and committing a hit-and-run that injured a 72-year-old motorcyclist. Bush was released from prison in December, and now he's playing for the Texas Rangers. 

But after more than three years in prison and out of the game, can Bush make a strong comeback? 

Bush signed a minor league deal in December with Texas, and his first game is Friday, May 13 against the Toronto Blue Jays. While some fans are welcoming Bush back with open arms, others either say his time is up or he's not deserving to play again.
