War of the Words

Who the heck is Brian Bruney? He's a reliever for the Yankees, a guy who sounds like he'd be a great henchman in a Jean-Claude movie, and he really hates K-Rod. (And apparently, according to the NY Post, the feeling is mutual.)

BB - [Re: K-Rod's emotional reaction to Luis Castillo's WORST CATCH EVER]: "Unbelievable. I've never seen anything like that. I have, but in high school," Bruney told reporters in Trenton. "It couldn't happen to a better guy on the mound, either. He's got a tired act."

K-Rod: "Instead of sending a message through the paper, next time when he see me at Citi Field come up to me and say it to my face," Rodriguez said. "Don't be sending a message through the media.

"I don't even know who that guy is. Somewhere in Double-A? I believe he hasn't even pitched one full season. He's always been on the DL. That's all I know right now. He better keep his mouth shut and do his job and not worry about somebody else."

K-Rod could have made his response simpler. As I once heard at a roast, "I'd S--T on you, but I don't know who the f--k you are."

I'm hoping Stephen Strasburg goes after Nolan Ryan next.

If you are in Trenton for any reason at all, you should be doing everything you can to get out of there, not flapping your gums
