The recent troubles between Yankees pitcher Brian Bruney and Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez has been reported widely, especially at Pete Abe's blog. The short of it is, Bruney made some comments that he probably should not have, K-Rod said some insulting things back that he probably should not have, and then when they saw each other at today's game, a scrap almost broke out, but it was intercepted by Mike Pelfrey and Jose Veras. K-Rod is an excellent pitcher, but his on the field celebrations and the way he carries himself are obnoxious. If you think Joba and Papelbon are bad, K-Rod is on a whole different level. Personally, I think baseball players shouldn't make comments about other players but what can you do. Either way, I think Bruney would have given it to K-Rod if they did go at it. K-Rod's put on a lot of weight over the years, but Bruney would have handled him.
We'll be back tomorrow with a recap of this weekends games, but for now I'll leave you with an observation that only years of baseball experience could possibly reveal: Santana got rocked.
