Ever since K-Rod has been taken out of the closer role, the Detroit Tiger hasn’t been shy expressing his thought on it. Calling it a “mop up” and how he deserves more, deserves better from the Detroit Tigers organization.
Last night’s loss to Seattle 9-6 was just bittersweet for those looking to finally depart from K-Rod.
In just a single inning, he happened to give up 2 hits, one walk and a grand slam to raise his ERA to 7.82. As fans and players sit and watch K-Rod play homerun derby with the opposing team, how can an organization keep employing someone who is out of his prime.
It’s time the Detroit Tigers organization to just eat his salary and depart. Sending him to FA.
This franchise is a mess and it’s getting even worse heading into the All-Star break with the Tigers sitting at 32-40 losing 6 straight and 2-8 in the last 10 games.
