Brewers Snag Mets Closer Francisco Rodriguez

41

I, for one, would really like to see the Pirates do it , but, I still think the Cardinals win the Central (damn, that hurts to type that). It appears the Brewers are gonna give it everything they got, though. Rodriguez's contract is up after this year and it sounds like the Mets paid some cash to get rid of him. Also, there's this... "Rodriguez has a contract clause that guarantees him US$17.5 million in 2012 if he finishes 55 games this year. The right-hander has currently finished 34 and is on pace to achieve the mark, though he may not get ample chances to do that with the Brewers." I'm thinkin' he won't be closin' very many games the rest of the way. The Mets probably had no choice due to their financial troubles. It looks like the wheelin' and dealin' has begun...already. Should be an interesting 18 days coming up.
