K-Rod's August ERA Almost as High as His Salary

Last night the Mets lost another one. With a 2-0 lead going into the 9th, Manuel gave the ball to Rodriguez. Game over right? Wrong. K-Rod gave up a grand slam to shortstop Everth Cabrera. Who you say? Good question. Everth Cabrera. K-Rod couldn't get a guy out with a grand total of 51 major league at bats and one previous home run in the most pitcher friendly ball park in the majors. Glad the Mets spent all that money in the off season to sure up the bullpen so this stuff won't happen. K-Rod's ERA since the All Star break is 12.79 with a stratospheric ERA of 47.25 in August. To say it is frustrating to be a Mets fan these day is an understatement.
