Report: Francisco Rodriguez Accepts Arbitration

521

The initial tweet is in Spanish, but Google translate has it as "Francisco Rodriguez accept arbitration offer and will remain as a setup for the Brewers." UPDATE: Tom Haudricourt confirms. Not only did K-Rod force the worst possible outcome, but he also waited until the last possible second to announce it.
