Grim LeRogue to be arraigned bedside on Thursday

1 Comment

Ian Begley of ESPN New York has an update on Grim LeRogue — the man who was arrested for running on the field during Game 3 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium.

LeRogue will have a bedside arraignment Thursday at New York’s Lincoln Hospital, where he has been held since the incident.  A judge will offer a ruling via video conference, and it sure sounds like the 33-year-old LeRogue is in some serious trouble.

He carried a picture of Alex Rodriguez with him that night, marked with an “X” on the third baseman’s face and a gun pointing to A-Rod’s head.  He also carried a picture of Cameron Diaz, who has been linked romantically to Rodriguez, that read “We Will Be Together Soon.”

Thankfully, New York’s finest tackled LeRogue before he got off the warning track.

He has undergone psychiatric evaluation while at Lincoln Hospital and seems likely to serve extra time in either a mental hospital or jail cell.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
