I don't see everyone's logic on this impending switch to Rodney, other than the fact that most here hope to inherit Rod. or have stashed Rodney away. Until Jones goes down or implodes, I don't see old school Leyland making that change. He's coached the same way for how many years?? Peace.
Exactly. Jones has blown 1 save, big deal, happens to everyone. so what if he gives up 3 hits and a run if he still gets the save. unless he gets hurt again or starts blowing games consistently, it's his job.
they did a radio interview with him the other day and he actually embraces the rollercoaster nickname. he also admitted that he thinks Rodney and Zumaya are outpitching him
the bottom line is though, his job is pretty dang secure, and unless you have deep benches Rodney is just like any other setup man
