K-Rod officially guilty

Closer Francisco Rodriguez officially entered a guilty plea in court in Queens on Friday morning to a attempted assault and two counts of disorderly conduct. As part of the agreement, he will be required to attend a 52-session anger-management program, pay $14,044.65 in restitution and a $1,000 fine.

K-Rod, who declined to comment, already had forfeited $3.1 million in Mets salary while settling his grievance over striking his girlfriend's father outside the family room at Citi Field in August.
