Francisco Rodriguez needs surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb.
An awful situation just keeps getting worse. He suffered the injury when he punched his girlfriend’s father last week. K-Rod is not with the team in Houston, but it’s not clear when the surgery will take place. Either way, he’s expected to be done for the year.
Crash Davis: Did you hit me with your right hand or did you hit me with your left? Huh? Did you hit me with your right hand or did you hit me with your LEFT?
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: My left.
Crash Davis: Good! That’s good; when you get in a fight with a drunk you don’t hit him with your pitching hand. God, I can’t keep giving you these free lessons so quit screwin’ around and help me up.
