Chicago Cubs’ Henry Rodriguez Has A Bad First Day At The Office

Yesterday Henry Rodriguez became the 2nd Henry Rodriguez in my generation to play for the Chicago Cubs.  Everyone remembers O’Henry from the late 90′s. This modern day Henry Rodriguez had a bit of a rough start to his Cub career.  The first pitch was called for low and away, well it arrived low and inside, hitting the home plate ump after grazing the catchers glove.  One pitch...

Nationals Trade Henry Rodriguez to Cubs for Minor Leaguer Ian Dickson

I can’t really say I am sad to see Henry Rodriguez traded from the Nationals. But I can’t say I’m happy either. It’s not everyday that you get a 100mph fire baller to walk through your doors.

Cubs Acquire Henry Rodriguez from Nats

The Cubs have acquired 26-year old Venezuelan flame-throwing RHRP Henry Rodriguez from the Washington Nationals for minor league RHP Ian Dickson. Despite the 102+ MPH fastball, Rodriguez has struggled big-time with control this season (16 BB in 18 IP, and a career 98 BB in 144.2 IP), and that's probably why the Nationals decided to move him.  Dickson was the Cubs 35th round...

Henry Rodriguez makes the Nats, definitely has naked pictures of Davey Johnson

"When you throw that hard and you do occasionally let one go, they’re not comfortable in there. Nobody’s comfortable in there. Ask the second baseman for the Braves how he feels about him.
