Finally some quotes from the man himself.
Here is one good quote :
"That's something very interesting," he said of his possible role with the Brewers. "I've been a closer my whole career. My mind's built as a closer. But we've got a good closer here, too. How it's going to play out, that's up to the manager. I have to be ready when the phone rings in the pen, and they call my name. That's it."
Here's one bleh quote:
Rodriguez was then asked if not having a defined role as the closer was made any easier by the fact he's joining a team in the hunt for a playoff spot.
"I don't know what to tell you," he said. "Like I said, I've always been a closer. But as long as I come in and can help this ballclub win, that's the bottom line. I just want to win. I just want to compete day in, day out, every night, and that's it. That's pretty much what I want to do."
Rodriguez also said he harbors no ill will toward the Mets for trading him.
