Why is Fernando Rodney our closer?

Honestly. I realize he's only blown one save out of 25 this year, but he puts men on base EVERY SINGLE GAME HE CLOSES. Dude is worse than Todd Jones.

Sommy just got negbanged big time. As a Cubs fan, I'm gonna say quit your whining and watch one of our pitchers give up a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth again. Kevin Gregg

It's clear that you will never change your opinion on Fernando Rodney, despite many people offering you statistics that prove otherwise. I admit that watching Fernando is a nightmare and terrifying, but He gets the job done when the game's on the line whether you want to admit it or not. That's his job.

My advice, take your negbanging and walk away.

Ryan Perry: 2 batters face 2 Ks where they just simply had no chance.

It really is ashame everyone knows he doesn't have the stuff to ever be a closer though, what a bummer : /
