K-Rod Shows True Colors

In case you missed it, former Mets closer and current Brewers setup man Francisco Rodriguez (a.k.a., “K-Rod”) is unhappy in his current role.


It seems that Mr. Rodriguez is dissatisfied with being “just” a setup man on a first-place team bound for the playoffs.

Perhaps he’d prefer to be a closer on a team that is 7 games under .500, 25 games out of first, has been mathematically eliminated from the postseason in the second week of September, and on the verge of sinking to fourth place? After all, winning isn’t everything.

From the Milwaukee Sentinel:


Blog Roundup: Wednesday Edition

It’s September. The leaves are changing, the kids are going back to school, and the weather’s cooling off. And so are the Mets’ bats. But at least we had a “Star Wars Night” to help dull the pain.

I have a Blog feeling about this:

  • Metstradamus wishes the strange combination of knitting and Star Wars could have provided Bobby Parnell with some effectiveness.
  • Mets Fever is concerned about Zack Wheeler – To the naked eye, his pitching mechanics resemble those of Mark Prior
  • LoHud Mets asks, who are you, Bobby Parnell? Who-who? Who-who?
  • Amazin’ Avenue points at Jonah Hill, and says, “What do these Mets do?”
  • Mets360 takes an all-around look at Mike Pelfrey, comparing him to other pitchers the Mets have taken first in the draft.
  • Jason Fry of Faith and Fear in Flushing was one of the stormtroopers at Citi Field the other night. The Force is strong in this one.

Happy reading, and May the Mets Today be with you.
