Father of K-Rod's girlfriend hires a lawyer

Sep 14, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

Boy, didn’t see this one coming. Totally blindsided here:

Daian Peña, the girlfriend of hotheaded Mets hurler Francisco Rodriguez, and her father, Carlos Peña, have hired a lawyer.

Lawyer
Jeff Korek won’t say if he plans to sue for injuries Carlos Peña
suffered when cops say the 6-foot, 195-pound reliever attacked him after
an Aug. 11 Mets loss at Citi Field.

Of course if Pena sues for injuries it will likely be the first time we’ve heard of any sort of injury he suffered during the skirmish. A skirmish which some people who know things about have described as a “slap fight.” Which, sure, is still not at all cool, but it’s not like there are surgical bills that need to be paid for here. Well, at least those besides K-Rod’s own for the ligament he screwed up.

Oh, and maybe this was out there before, but it’s the first time I’m seeing it reported: the fight started when Pena told K-Rod’s mom to shut up and insulted her. The law doesn’t provide for a “don’t talk about my momma” defense, but juries tend to be rather sympathetic to that sort of thing, so fight the suit, K-Rod! Don’t settle!  Make him go all the way!

    I’ll bet he hit the guy in the head. I mean, he hits himself in the head, so why not? All the plaintiff has to do is show video of this guy punching his own head, (which he does every time he pitches well) and K-rod is hung out to dry.
    Craig, you might be a little off on the whole “fight it K-rod” cheerleading. Because you forget one factor that erases a Jury’s sympathy instantly. K-Rod is filthy rich, Pena is not. This would be akin to the McDonalds hot coffee vs. old lady deal.

    The guy shouldn’t hire a lawyer. He should hire someone to go Nancy Kerrigan on K-Rod…

    You mean he should hire someone to go Shane Stant on K-Rod. I hardly see the point of skating circles around him.
