    Associated Press
    <!-- template inline -->DENVER -- Denny Neagle's second run-in with the law in a little more than a year cost him his job with the Colorado Rockies.

    The Rockies terminated the oft-injured pitcher's contract Monday, three days after he was cited for solicitation.

    "This decision is about an organization and the fans that support it," Rockies chairman Charles Monfort said. "Denny's pattern of behavior has not been consistent with what our organization represents."

    Neagle, who has not pitched in more than a year because of injuries, was pulled over Friday in suburban Lakewood for allegedly speeding. Police said a woman in his car told them he had paid her $40 for oral sex.

    Neagle's agent, Barry Meister, declined comment. The players' association could file a grievance to overturn the team's decision and get Neagle the remaining money owed under the contract.

    "We're going to have some discussions with central baseball," said Gene Orza, the union's chief operating officer.

    Colorado cited section 7 (b) (1) of the Uniform Player Contract, which states the team can terminate the contract if a player shall "fail, refuse or neglect to conform his personal conduct to the standards of good citizenship and good sportsmanship or to keep himself in first-class physical condition."

    Neagle was issued a court for summons for Jan. 27. The woman, Jill Russell of Denver, was issued a citation on a charge of prostitution and a court summons for Jan. 13.

    Last October, Neagle was charged with drunken driving after he drove his sport utility vehicle into the back of another vehicle. Later in 2003, he pleaded guilty.

    The 36-year-old left-hander, who agreed to a $51 million, five-year contract in December 2000, is owed $19 million by the Rockies: $10 million in 2005 and a $9 million buyout of a $12.5 million team option for 2006.

    He last pitched on July 20, 2003, and in the past 14 months has had elbow ligament and shoulder surgery. Neagle has a 124-92 career record with a 4.24 ERA over 11 seasons. As many pitchers do, Neagle struggled with the Rockies, going 19-23 with a 5.57 over the two-plus seasons he was healthy.

    Neagle Pleads Guilty in Prostitution Rap

    Neagle's lawyer Harvey Steinberg entered the plea on his behalf Tuesday during an unscheduled hearing, district attorney spokeswoman Pam Russell said.
    <!--endtext--> <!--begintext--> Neagle, who faced up to six months in jail and a fine of $500, did not attend the hearing.
    The plea, which comes after a ruling in his favor last week, means Neagle avoids a trial that was scheduled to begin Monday. On Jan. 17, a judge agreed with Neagle's lawyer that a statement the pitcher made to one of the arresting officers couldn't be used against him because he wasn't read his rights.
    Neagle was ticketed in the Denver suburb of Lakewood on Dec. 3, 2004, after a woman in his car told police he had paid her $40 for sex. The Colorado Rockies terminated his contract three days later, but later agreed to an undisclosed settlement.
    Neagle had $10 million left on his five-year, $51 million contract, along with a $9 million team buyout option. After being cut by the Rockies, he agreed to a minor league contract with Tampa Bay, then was released.
    Neagle has a 124-92 career record with a 4.24 ERA in 13 seasons with the Minnesota Twins, Pittsburgh Pirates, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds, New York Yankees and Rockies. He has not pitched in a major league game since July 2003 because of injuries.
