Word has filtered in that Francisco Rodriguez has left the country to attend to personal matters (presumably in his native Venezuela). Steve Popper of the Bergen Record tweeted a few hours ago that K-Rod is “out of country for personal matter til opener (at best).” Fingers are crossed everything is OK with Frankie, but seriously? Now this happens? Only the Mets. Expect Pedro Feliciano to get a chance to close things out if the opportunity presents itself. I am taking bets on the next domino to fall. Anyone have a good one? Bay gets on the wrong subway and misses Opening Day? Wright gets stung by some bees? Weeeeeeeeeeeehoooooooooo!!!!!!!
