“K-Rod Promises to Bring the Heat”

I already love this guy. And, a choice quote for the non-Met New York fans (Yankee fans, I guess):

“Not to disrespect other cities, but New York is really different,” Rodriguez said, spoken almost like a lifelong New Yorker. “The fans are really passionate. A lot of players like to be on that stage. I’m the kind of guy that likes to be on the big stage. I’m the kind of guy that likes to be involved in the pressure.”

Even if the velocity explanation isn’t totally convincing, I like his style.

Edit:

It gets better:

Francisco Rodriguez has a message for the Philadelphia Phillies and the rest of the NL East.

Of course, we’re going to try to win the division. Of course, we’re going to be the front-runner. Of course, we’re going to be the team to beat,” he said Saturday…

I don’t want there to be a controversy or the other ballclubs in that division to take it personally or take it in a bad way,” he said. “If they ask me, ‘Oh, which ballclub is going to win the National League East?’ It’s going to be the Mets. Easy question.”

It’s going to be an interesting season.
