K-Rod is a goner
He was pushed out the door, but as I thank him for his service in Angels' organization for 10 years - it is time to move on.
You figure he has done all he can - helped the Angels to a 2002 World Series Championship and set the bar with his single-season saves record.
While it falls a bit short of what he and his agent were probably looking to get - K-Rod got his money [about $37 million] and also three years to close for a New York Mets team that was desperate for a star reliever / closer type.
I'm sure there are Angels' fans rejoicing the moment K-Rod inked his deal with the Mets - but there is always a caveat. I have trust in the Angels' organization to replace him but the time is now for either Jose Arredondo or Scot Shields.
