Meet the Mets
More details are coming out surrounding Wednesday night's K-Rod assault fiasco and they're not exactly flattering. The New York Post reports (so take it with a grain of salt) that the assault victim was coming to the defense of his daughter, Rodriguez's girlfriend and mother of his two twin children, who was getting yelled at by Rodriguez. Since that night, Rodriguez has been released from custody, only to be suspended by the Mets for two games. The Queens prosecutor handling the case will emphasize Rodriguez's previous violent behavior. Some of that behavior could have been covered up by the various franchises and teammates he's had over the years.
Fortunately, the Mets had Johan Santana there to take some of the attention back to the field.
The Mets called up Ryota Igarashi to fill Rodriguez's roster spot, costing the Japanese reliever $300 in cab fare from Scranton, PA.
Rod Barajas has started his rehab. There was much rejoicing.
The Phillies showed their grittiness and manliness by coming back big against the Dodgers. 8-run big.
Rob Dibble one ups Keith Hernandez in his disdain for women in baseball stadiums.
Bryce Harper's college coach believes that he was the greatest amateur baseball player in history.
And, finally, the Houston couple made famous by the uncaught foul ball has broken up.
Looks as though Met fans aren't the only ones wishing to rewrite Philadelphia recent successes. The NHL mistakenly engraved the Washington Capitals' name on the Prince of Wales trophy, the trophy that goes to the winner of the Eastern Conference.
