Francisco "K-Rod", the Mets’ controversial closer, was back in Criminal Court recently, but this time to face new charges that he sent dozens of text messages to his estranged girlfriend in violation of an order of protection.
The New York Post printed one of those texts:
I know this message could get me in trouble again, but I already lost you, my house and my children," Rodriguez wrote. "Daian, I understand that perhaps I made a mistake, the biggest mistake of my life for doing what I did but I love you."
Though it sounds like a man trying to salvage his relationship, the over 50 texts that he reportedly sent could mean the end of his career.
