In 2011 down here in Texas, we had both Oliver and Rhodes in the 'pen. The Fox Sports Southwest channel that carried Rangers games had a commercial with the two elder statesmen in it together (they could have used some acting lessons, but it was neat to see them together in the spot). Arthur lasted to mid-season sometime, then was released - and picked up by the Cardinals. He was then set up to get a ring either way in the 2011 World Series, just like the 2010 Rangers catcher Bengie Molina who had also played with San Francisco that year.
Luckily for Rhodes, not only did he get to celebrate a World Series win in his only trip (after those two decades of pitching in the bigs) to get his ring, but he also got to be a part of the action as a late lefty to face Josh Hamilton.
