The wheels fell off of Rhodes in '11 and '12. We parted ways at the right time.
Rhodes is 43, didn't play in 2012, and pitched poorly in 2011.
Jocketty is going Jeff Shaw for the win.
(And Shaw is going to pitch LH.)

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
Anyone think Pete Schourek would convert from a starter?
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

Reds balked, Gonzalez to sign with Brewers.
Anyone else feel like the Brewers had their 3-5 year window and said window is now closed?
