Rays Closer in 2011:  K-Rod?



There's every reason why this won't happen.  Legal problems.  Contract problems.  But depending upon cost, the Rays might be in position to take advantage of a situation.

If Francisco Rodriguez's legal problems clear up by the start of next season (and that's a big if), Rodriguez could be had on the cheap.  The Mets are trying to get out of his contract, which is never easy to do with guaranteed contracts.  If the Rays were willing to pick up, say 4 million for each of his two seasons left, that might be enough to swing a trade.  Maybe reuniting K-Rod with Maddon from their Angel glory days would be a good thing.

This may or may not work.  But the only reason why Soriano became a Rays is do to an unexpected accepting of arbitration.  And the Rays were ready to take advantage of the situation.  Maybe this could be one of those situations, if, that be, the price is right.
