FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ RUMORS

The future is uncertain for Francisco Rodriguez

Francisco Rodriguez has seen a lot in his 13-year career in the major leagues. But even he is blown away by how 2014 turned out for him. The Milwaukee Brewers’ collapse aside, the 32-year-old enjoyed his best season since 2008, when he set the single-season saves record with 62. Rodriguez recorded 44 saves in 49 opportunities – tied for third most in the National League ...

So hopefully you all can understand my tepidness to...

Sizzling starting pitching for the Milwaukee Brewers

To say I am surprised by the Milwaukee Brewers’ first turn through the rotation would be an understatement. I am delightfully enamored. The Brewers are coming off a sweep of the Boston Red Sox in Fenway, and while the bats came alive and plated more runs than in the opening series vs. the Braves, it was the starting pitching that was the driving force. Marco Estrada pitched five...

Brewers' Rodriguez still hopes to close again

MILWAUKEE Francisco Rodriguez is fiddling with his smart phone, sitting in the leather chair next to his locker, when he's asked about how he has settled into his role as the Milwaukee Brewers setup man. It's been almost a year to the day that Rodriguez was in a Milwaukee uniform for the first time. He stops abruptly and looks up from his phone. He clearly doesn't like...
