I know I have better photos of Francisco Rodriguez, but it’s late and I was on my way to bed when the news came in. I picked up my phone to check something and there it was, the push alert from the MLB Trade Rumors app.
I read it like three times, before I went to the physical website, and then I yelled, “The Mets Trade Francisco Rodriguez To The Brewers.”
TBF: “Noooo! You’re kidding, right?”
I read the headline again, and he came running into the room, where he then stood there reading over my shoulder as I read the story to him. For some reason, it didn’t seem real to either of us.

Vaya con dios, Francisco. I prefer to remember when I used to like you a lot, and would eagerly wear 75 RODRIGUEZ to games. I would like to forget the drama, and the two massive blown saves (DC and Baltimore) I had to witness personally.
