Just wanted to get in on the fun of using Stay-Rod in a headline. If Mark Feinsand and George King can both use it, then so can I. But now would be a good time to monopolize and trademark some future plays on Rodriguez’s nickname:
Gray-Rod (if his next contract extends him into his 40s)
Whey-Rod (if he is photographed sitting on a tuffet of some kind)
Betray-Rod (if he signs with Boston)
Delay-Rod (if he encounters J.D. Drew-like delays in completing his contract)
I really think Betray-Rod could get some back page mileage one day.
