"Yes, it's true. Francisco traveled to New York to get a medical checkup. That's all I needed to give effect to its contract with the Mets," confessed a source linked to stellar closing Venezuelan, who comes to impose a record for Major League, with 62 rescues that conquered during the regular harvest."
-Translated page from El Universal (via Mets Blog), noting Francisco Rodriguez traveled to New York.
If you want to believe this article, K-Rod is getting very close to signing a contract with the Mets, if he's getting checked out by Mets doctors.
A lot of people have taken note of his decreased velocity, so having his arm checked out is something of high importance for whatever team decides to pay him what he wants.
Take this article with a HUGE grain of salt. I don't trust this "source" at all.
Still, I'm nervous.
UPDATE: According to Bart Hubbuch in the Post, this story is completely false. He even quotes K-Rod's agent, Paul Kinzer, who said it was "total BS."
Well, there goes that. For now.
