Sorry for a non-Yankee-related post, but this is the biggest story in New York right now. We have some clarification on why an order of protection was issued for both his girlfriend’s father and his girlfriend, turns out there was prior history of violence as reported by ESPN:
During the arraignment in Queens Criminal Court, Judge Mary O’Donoghue issued two orders of protection: one for Daian Pena, who was described as Rodriguez’s common-law wife and mother of their 1-year-old twins, and one for her father. Assistant District Attorney Kristen A. Kane described the incident to the judge and said that other violent episodes between Rodriguez and Daian Pena are being investigated in Venezuela and California. Kane said that Daian Pena took out an order of protection against Rodriguez in Venezuela.
“There seems to be a history of violence,” Kane said. “[The complainants are] very concerned. They are very fearful of the defendant returning to the home.”
Here’s a more detailed account of what happened yesterday from the NY Daily News:
“Stop acting like a baby,” one source quoted Peña as telling the volatile Rodriguez inside a Citi Field lounge designated for players’ families. “Man up, and play better.”
K-Rod’s mother told Peña to keep his mouth shut, prompting a screaming match in Spanish between the pair, the source said.
“You can’t talk to my mami that way!” Rodriguez shouted before landing the first of many punches in the Wednesday night mismatch.
My first reaction in domestic disputes is to reserve judgment, because accounts tends to be one-sided on both ends. But this prior history of violence is very damning of K-Rod. Further, this is the type of thing the Mets should have known about when they signed him as a free agent 2 years ago. What a surprise, the GM that covered for Tony Bernazard (and got upset at Adam Rubin for outing him) signed a guy with a history of domestic violence.
