FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ RUMORS

Is more K-Rod the answer for the Brewers?

Brewers bring back Fransico Rodriguez on two-year deal

Milwaukee Brewers: Hot start thoughts

For the most part I am a very pessimistic fan.  I think that setting expectations low for the teams that I am a fan of allows me to deal with extreme disappointment better (case in point, I predicted that my favorite football team, the Denver Broncos, would get killed in the Super Bowl, so when they did it didn’t feel as bad.) So hopefully you all can understand my tepidness to...

Opening day surprise: Francisco Rodriguez earns the save for the Brewers (but don’t drop Jim Henderson)
