Metropolitan Malefactors

Two of the Mets' key hurlers have found themselves in trouble with the law.

Johan Santana faces a possible civil suit from a woman in Florida who is seeking monetary compensation for emotional distress and physical pain. The woman has alleged that ten months ago, she was the victim of sexual assault, and as a result, became pregnant. According to her allegations, she miscarried, and wants to see some measure of justice, since the criminal charges against Santana were dropped due to lack of evidence and inconsistencies in her story. Santana has denied any assault occurred, and the Mets will continue with their plans of distributing 25,000 Santana themed beer can holders for 'Fiesta Latina Night' tomorrow evening.

Francisco Rodriguez brings new meaning to the word 'clubhouse' after getting into a "physical altercation" with his father-in-law last night. Rodriguez faces third degree assault charges, a class A misdemeanor, which may result in a $2,500 fine, a year in prison, or both. Rodriguez's father-in-law received a bump to his head, and a scratch on his face (according to Sport's Illustrated), or "facial bruises and minor head injuries" (according to This is the fourth altercation in which Rodriguez was involved since coming to the Mets in 2009.

Will these legal woes affect the Mets' abilities on the field? That remains to be seen. However, the Mets are currently considering altering the Bullpen Gate to accommodate the needs of their pitchers. Click on the image below to enlarge.

Agreed. K-Rod is a doucher and a hothead. How many people has he beat up already? If he weren't a fucking athlete, he'd be in jail.

Actually Matthew, he did finally go to jail this time. Albeit only for a few hours.
