K-rod Deserves an All-Star Nod


Not much is working well for the Milwaukee Brewers this season, but their All-Star closer continues to shine.

Prior to Thursday’s game against the New York Mets, Francisco Rodriguez has pitched 10 consecutive innings without letting a run score. He has been stellar for the Brewers in the last seven games, only allowing three hits with 10 strikeouts and no earned runs.

If he continues to pitch like this in the next week, K-rod is more than deserving to be a part of the National League All Star team and potentially be the lone Brewers representative in the All Star Game.

Rodriguez’s performance this season has also garnered some attention for the July trade deadline. It was reported by Bob Elliot of the Toronto Sun that the Toronto Blue Jays were eyeing Rodriguez to fill in the closer role.

K-rod signed a two-year contract with the Brewers prior to the beginning of the their horrid 27-46 start to the season. His 1.00 ERA and 15 saves in 15 opportunities should give him the nomination for the All Star team and a trade to a playoff contending team.
