Fernando Rodney - The B Sides

Fernando Rodney is gone. We put very little effort into our goodbye, because bad meta-commentary is what 2015 Fernando Rodney deserves. (Ed's note) This post was written August 5th during the Mariners 7-5 extra inning loss to the Colorado Rockies. The Mariners were on their way to winning their 4th straight, and five out of six. It was going to be their strongest stretch of the season and finally, maybe, lead the team towards a run. It didn't happen. It didn't happen because Fernando Rodney, perhaps more than any other single player, completely collapsed. Because of his blown save that 3...

Bye Bye Fernando – Mariners DFA Rodney (It’s About Time)

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, says goodbye to M's closer Fernando Rodney-- Rodney's departure finally signals a response from Jack Zduriencik and ownership that Rodney had failed them in 2015.

Fernando Rodney’s epic downfall another sad development in a lost Seattle Mariners season

Au revoir, Fernando Rodney.

Nelson Cruz and Jesus Montero take 1000 feet or so to beat the Texas Rangers, 4-2

The Mariners took the series from the Rangers on Sunday, giving Felix his 14th win on the season. It was...not...the worst thing you've ever seen. Shocking, really, because Felix was at 74 pitches after four innings, and the only available arms in the pen were Fernando Rodney, Carson Smith, and that pudgy guy with the BIG DOGS! t-shirt hanging over the rail watching both warm up. At this point, it was 2-0 Rangers, and you didn't exactly feel the most confidence you had ever felt as a Mariners fan. First, it was Prince Fielder earning his first career hit against the king, making him now 1...

50-59: Chart

After a top-shelf Fernando Rodney special, the Mariners fall to the Rockies in extras, 7-5. When ur spaceship goes to Mars: Rob Rasmussen (.295 WPA) When ur computer house gets left behind after the apocalypse: Fernando Rodney (-.563 WPA) There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground, And swallows circling with their shimmering sound; And frogs in the pools, singing at night, And wild plum trees in tremulous white, Robins will wear their feathery fire, Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire; And not one will know of the war, not one Will care at last when it is...
