Brewers' Francisco Rodriguez admits he needs a day off

Francisco Rodriguez had to convince Ron Roenicke that he could take the ninth inning for the fourth day in a row.

K-Rod took the ball and closed the door for the Brew Crew, totaling his 8th save of the season and fourth straight. He also improved his career numbers, grabbing save number 312, passing Tom Henke on the All-Time list. After the game, he let Adam McCalvy of MLB.com in on a secret.


Thursday would be the next day off scheduled for the whole team. It seems highly unlikely that Roenicke would turn to K-Rod for a fifth day in a row as the Brewers continue their series with the San Diego Padres, but from the sound of it, Rodriguez would be up to the task.

In 11 appearances for Milwaukee this season, the 32-year old has put up an amazing 0.00 ERA with 13.1 K/9.

    Oh, what a surprise. Some 3rd world latin comes to America, gets rich by being lazy and now doesn’t want to “work” even though he makes 16 times more each year than the average doctor makes and all this lazy complaining spick does is pitch 1 single inning each game he appears in!! I have a great idea: let’s strip him of his entire salary and clear his bank accounts then ship him back to Dominican Republic via makeshift raft packed full of other lazy complaining latin filth. Ungrateful, lazy pieces of scum!!
