Mets beef up security in light of K-Rod getting all punchy

2 Comments

I’m not sure this is necessary. There has been a 100% drop in relief pitcher-on-girlfriend’s father violence in the Mets clubhouse in recent days!

Since Francisco Rodriguez suffered a season-ending hand injury while
allegedly assaulting his girlfriend’s father in the family lounge at
Citi Field last week, the Mets have increased their security presence
monitoring players, police sources said.

Before the incident, which resulted in the Mets attempting to avoid
paying Rodriguez for this season and the Players Association filing a
grievance on the closer’s behalf, the Mets typically employed one guard,
home and away.

But since K-Rod’s outburst, the Mets have increased the number of
security guards assigned to tail players on buses, planes and hotels.
And the guards are drawn from a more experienced pool than before,
police sources said.

Or, instead of more cops, the Mets could maybe try and figure out if their players are nut cases or not.

The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.

Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
