Quote of the day: Jim Leyland on Fernando Rodney

6 Comments

Jim Leyland and Fernando Rodney no longer wear the same uniform, but they do share a common goal, as the hopes of both the Tigers and Rays currently hinge on the performance of the White Sox. Rodney was able to close out Tampa Bay’s win over Chicago Thursday in the first game of a four-game series, and Leyland is looking for more help from his former closer.

Rodney, as you may have noticed, has taken to firing an imaginary bow and arrow after his saves this season. I’m not sure about his skills as an archer, but he’s certainly hit the mark with the vast majority of his pitches this year.
