Francisco Rodriguez, aka K-ROD, was arrested in Flushing Meadows after beating up his father-in-law after another New York Mets loss. The Mets closer was already in a bad mood because he wasn’t called in the 8th inning with the bases loaded and two outs. He cursed at reporters. Then things really got out of control after the game, in which K-Rod and his father-in-law got into an argument, which resulted in K-Rod attacking the old man in front of women and children at the so-called Mets Family Lounge.
Rodriguez’s father-in-law was taken to Flushing Hospital in Queens, and suffered head and facial injuries. K-Rod was arrested by police. K-Rod actually yelled at a reporter who witness the entire crime.
K-Rod- the outgoing and confrontational pitcher- already has had numerous violent outbursts in the past- all with the Mets. Granted, he was no angel with the Angels (pun) but never to the point of frustration as he is with the Mets.
Like Johan Santana and other free agents that come to the Mets for the big money, K-Rod’s reputation has been tarnished as soon as he put on the orange and blue baseball cap.
The team is cursed, as is its fanbase.
