LOL, Reckless? These guys have just wrote something dumb on his eye black in Spanish and the other is accused by LaRussa who was a control freak of listing to his dad. I bet we have players on the team now that have done far worse things in their lives than that it just didn't make the media.
Go to MLB to the video and type in Rasmus and defense and see how hits he lost to highlight plays. He one bad run this year after he got hurt where he went into a long slump but he hit the ball hard as hell for the better part of the year.
He hit just .223 and still hit 23 HR and drove in 75 runs and scored the same in one of the best divisions in baseball, just think of the damage the kid would do with our RF HR porch that has seen him already hit 5 HR in 80 AB and the park has handed out 11 XBH in his 22 hits.
He hit .141 vs the O's in 18 games and .113 in 17 games vs New York last year the two playoff teams from the AL East vs NL teams last year he hit .309/.365/.632/.997 in 17 games vs all 5 AL East teams plus the Brewers.
