    Didn't think so. I'll see you again tomorrow night around the top of the ninth."

    No surprise there. Can't blame either side here. The Angels made a respectable offer but K-Rod can probably get more elsewhere.

      I donĀ“t see manny teams without closer for the next season able to pay what he wants, which until I know is the same money that earns Mo Rivera ($15 millions per season).
      In fact, out of the incredible number of opportunities cortesy of his now hated team, his others numbers (K/9, BB/9, Hits/9, BS) are not better than those from other closers in the mlb.
      At the end probably he will be signing with... the Angels and by more or less the offer they shows him early this season.
      You have to suffer a revolution to know what are you talking about.

            well, the yanks do throw insane amounts of $$$ at players, but I would put my money on him staying an Angel.

              No he won't. They have Rivera to close games. They aren't going to pay $15 million+ a year for a set up man.

                Isn't Rivera a free agent after this year? If he is, it makes perfect sense for them to go after Rodriguez.

                  No, Rivera got a three-year extension in the off-season for $45 million smackers.

                    I'm not a huge K-Rod fan either. If $15 million a year is what it takes to keep him then I'd just assume let him go. That money can be better spent elsewhere.
