For those of you wondering what may happen to Francisco Rodriguez as a result of his little dustup with the wife’s old man, the Mets are suspending him for two games and he will be subject to anger management classes.
On the legal side, I contacted his lawyer, Jay Reisinger, to ask him if he plans on pleading insanity or blaming the media or something (which, like I said, would be the best call). Sadly, all I got was a “no comment.”
Whatever happens to him legally, though, I presume it will be a misdemeanor. If the Mets follow through on their plan to start Ollie on Saturday, however, felony warrants should be issued.
