Breaking News: K-Rod Ain’t So Tough

Admit it… you thought K-Rod was cool.

His take-no-prisoners approach to baseball and life really spoke to your sensibilities as a Mets fan. The guy had it all – a shaky delivery, a big contract, a balky ankle, an attitude problem, an anger management issue and boy, was that guy tough. He beat up his coach AND his father-in-law in the same season. He lives the life we can only dream of!

Well, not so much, apparently. Turns out Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez is as brittle as an old lady playing in the NFL.

MetsBlog is reporting that K-Rod tore a ligament in his right thumb while he was manhandling an old man. Ouch! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer moron.

Now the Mets don’t have to listen to fans booing their decision to let Rodriguez off lightly with a two-day suspension.

Pretty cool, huh?

    Please say he can be fired for cause under his contract now. Please.

    The one thing the Wilpons and Met front office excel at is nullifying contracts and trying to do same. The released Hernandez last year right before a bonus kicked in, released Cora when it was apparent next year’s option was going to kick in and tried to void Beltran’s contract for oh my gosh having surgery to try to save his carer. You know the entire legal staff is working OT to void this one. And they’ve probably forgotten tonite is deadline to sign draft picks.

    He is his own hero. That’s his problem. He needs a huge attitude adjustment. He makes baseball players look bad…

    Admit it, you thought “Francis” was an over-the-top douche-bag from the time you heard his name connected with the Mets on the open market.

    Thanks for proving every ounce of it, buddy. Hopefully, this organization is starting to see the crap-fest they’ve constructed.

    Fistfuls of millions spent on absolute dead-weight — and flat-out losers.
