I'm not one to wish an injury on anyone. But when I read this I just thought it was poetic justice.
I was surprised at the Mets for not taking stronger action. And surprised at Manuel for backing him up and then saying he can't say why he is backing him up because of legal issues. Really. From what I read of the incident his sort-of father in law (they are common law married) called him out and Rodgriguez's mother started yelling at the father in law who swore back at her. And so he began to pummel him. I understand backing up your mom. But beating up the grandfather of your children? Who is 30 years older than you? In public? At your work-place? With other families there? Wow!
I understand you are running a team and a lot of things are, and should be, ignored. But I also think teams should have high standards in certain areas. And if a team let's behaviour go then they start to become more and more dysfunctional. It just seems to happen to the same teams over and over, while the top teams seem to have more accountability.
