Jayson Stark: Angels, Fernando Rodney Come To Terms
The 32-year-old (he will be playing out his age 33 season next year) had a 4.40 ERA last year with a 7.3 K/9 rate, and a 1.49 K/BB ratio. His best days would seem to be behind him, as he's been close to average as measured by ERA+ since his last great year in 2006. This is a signing that looks for the world like Scot Shields insurance; if they were gonna give anybody a two-year deal, it should have been lefty Darren Oliver. A really puzzling move by Tony Reagins.
