    K-Rod Accepts Arbitration

    Oh boy. Was mad when I first heard this but I actually quite like it.

    CONS:
    -At least 8 million locked into our setup-man. Could have used that money on a more pressing need.
    -No compensatory picks in the first round.

    PROS:
    -Really helps out the back end of the bullpen for now, especially since Hawkins just signed with Anahiem.
    -Whether or not the Brewers are in the race down the stretch, you know someone else in the race will need a closer and we can pass K-Rod onto them for something valuable.
    AL East Champions: 1981 1982
    AL Pennant: 1982
    NL Central Champions: 2011
    NL Wild Card: 2008

    "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

    Yeah, I was kinda pissed, but it can't hurt the team.

    Could he be traded to another team? Would the Brewers be willing to eat some, but not all, of the salary to move K-Rod?

    I would not want him on the Mets, for one.
    The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.
