New, 42 comments

Earlier today the MLBPA filed a grievance on behalf of loose-cannon reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who was placed on the disqualified list on Tuesday for, as Jeff Wilpon put it, "conduct in violation of his uniform player’s contract." The player's association was none too pleased.

"The Mets' actions are without basis," said Michael Weiner, the executive director of the MLBPA. "I expect the union will file a grievance promptly."

To which the Mets promptly responded with

"We disagree with the position of the Players Association. We believe our action was justified and appropriate"

And on it goes.
