I was wondering last night that maybe K Rod would be asked to protect a lead in the 8th inning with 2 outs. He wasn’t and something snapped in K Rod after the game. He wound up having a fight with his father in law outside the family lounge and was arrested after the Mets 6-2 loss to the Rockies. K Rod was later charged with third-degree assault
There was some word exchanged after the game and he beat up on the 53 yr old which left his Father in law with facial abrasions and cuts. K Rod was then hurried into the Mets locker where a policeman was brought in the area where the Media isn’t allowed. KRod will be arraigned this morning at Queens Criminal Court. There is really no jail time for a charge like this and the charges could be dropped.
K Rod is no stranger to confrontations since he had an issue with Mets bullpen coach Randy Nieman earlier in the year and the Yanks Brian Bruney last year.
Read the latest on the incident over at the Daily News
Manager Jerry said after the game that he doesnt like to use K Rod for more then 3 outs if he used him the night before. So I guess he likes to overuse everyone else in his pen and not win games.
