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.

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...

It is not uncommon for balls to travel over the protective screen behind home plate, but usually that happens when a lazy, high foul pop-up comes off the bat of the hitter, not caroming sky-high after a wacky bounce during a wild pitch by an erratic pitcher. But that exact situation occurred on Tuesday night when Washington Nationals relief pitcher Henry Rodriguez’s wild pitch...
