Francisco Rodriguez Facing More Charges

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez, in legal trouble over a fight with his girlfriend’s father, is now facing more charges. This time for allegedly violating an order of protection.

Authorities said in court today that Rodriguez violated an order of protection by sending his girlfriend 56 text messages apologizing and urging a resolution. They said he’ll now be charged with criminal contempt.

Rodriguez is accused of attacking his girlfriend’s father outside a family lounge at Citi Field.

He was arrested after the Mets lost to Colorado on Aug. 11.

He tore a ligament in the thumb of his pitching hand during the altercation and required surgery. He was placed on the disqualified list. The team says he wouldn’t be paid until he’s off.

K-Rod just can’t stay out of his own way, can he? It’s a small part of the story, but the Mets will be better off by finding a way to cut ties with this guy.
