He makes 8 million this year, throws heat, and is a proven closer when healthy (30+ save the past 8 years). You don't have a guy like that in a set-up role without creating serious PR and clubhouse problems. The team doesn't even have any baseball motivation to do that, because they have been using k-rod has a relief ace in important innings and some saves already, which is the best thing for them to do if they want to win.
