    Most of our current pen was in pampers when this guy started his professional career.

    Don't get the signing, and I hope we never see him.

    I just don't see any reason why they'd give Rodney a shot over Forrest Whitley.

    Rodney fact: so...he’s faced a lot of (stupid) criticism for wearing his hat slightly sideways. He wears it that way to pay homage to his dad, who was a fisherman who tilted his hat that way. His dad passed away the day before his ML debut.

    Hopefully he doesn’t pitch meaningful innings, but a vet like him can pay other dividends with as many rookies arms as we have.

    Well, I commend doing something rather than nothing, but it is hard to imagine this signing winning us any games.

    I would much, much rather see a bunch of rookies than Rodney.

    But I prefer Rodney to Bud Norris, so there's that

    what don’t you get? They have 10 rookies in the pen. I wish the Astros didn’t see him in the World Series when he shut them down.
