This was discussed on Saturday, but I wanted to take another look at Francisco Rodriguez’s comments to the L.A. Times. First, he notes that the Angels are definitely still in the mix:
"I want to clarify something. Just because I want to explore the market, it doesn’t mean I don’t want to be here."
What’s more, K-Rod may not require the five year, $75MM contract we’ve seen bandied about. Rodriguez told Mike DiGiovanna he’d consider a four-year deal with a fifth-year option. DiGiovanna says that’s more in line with the Angels’ thinking.
