Apparently Francisco Rodriguez doesn't understand how a restraining order works, otherwise he wouldn't have sent over 50 texts to his girlfriend in violation of said restraining order since the time he decided to kick the shit out of her father right in front of her. Here are some of the gems of the collection, via the WWL:
• "I know this message could get me in trouble again, but I already lost you, my house and my children"
• "I do not want to have problems with your family, all I want ... is to recover you and my children and continue forward"
• "Lets find a solution to this conflict, baby if you really loved me do not deny me the opportunity to fight for you and my children"
• "Tell your father and mother, so that the three of us can get together and reach an agreement and leave things as they are and I can recover my house and my job, please lets find ... way to solve this."
• "Thank you for sinking me turning your back, take good care of my children ... and now I see that your were with me because of the money to see that your family ..."
• "Your parents are manipulating you like a marionette ... You are already a woman who can make her own decisions"
• "You are already a woman who can make her own decisions and because of that, our home in spite of its ups and downs we built it together no longer exist because of their greed. I pray to God that is not too late for you to open your eyes and reconsider."
• "Daian, I understand that perhaps I made a mistake, the biggest mistake of my life for doing what I did but I love you"
• "Things like this should not be done especially when your parents have what they have because of me, even clothes."
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! This would almost be sad if it wasn't so incredibly hilarious. What an asshat. First off, dude, if you're going to blatantly violate a court order, you might want to not use your own phone to text. And if you're trying to apologize to the mother of your kids, you might want to refrain from accusing her of turning her back on you, accusing her of being a gold digger, comparing her to a puppet, and attempting to play off the seriousness of the situation because you supposedly provided her parents with stuff.
Now I've done my fair share of apologizing to girls in my life, sometimes when it was warranted and sometimes when it wasn't. And I can say from experience that a well-written, honest, remorseful text message is a good starting point. But to then turn everything around and insinuate that you shouldn't have a restraining order against you because you bought the old dude who you kicked the crap out of a t-shirt or two is definitely not the correct next step.
It's just a never-ending calamity of errors for the Mets, on and off the field. Even as a shitty baseball team they are still entertaining. And now it appears that in his personal life, just like he often does on the mound at the end of a game, The Pitcher Formerly Known as K-Rod has trouble closing. And if there's one rule we follow here at AB4AR, it's A-B-C.
Always Be Closing.
Tell him, Blake.
