I guess the Sox are giving up on the chase this year!!

We sent Jose Rodriguez to the Scorps for a player to named later???

Jose is/was our most consistent player all year...sad to see him go. After losing Masa last week all we have is a newly acquired catcher that I know nothing about.

Well, the season is all but over but I think Les is still making the moves that will allow the team to finish well. Rodriguez had cooled down quite a bit with a .111 average over the last 10 games. He also was a liability defensively as I think we all were a little frustrated with the passed balls and the errant pick off attempts that went into the outfield. As I recall, there was also at least one game where Les pulled him for a passed ball that allowed a run. And, lets not forget that he called Rodriguez "lazy" in that one RGJ article.

So McLeod may not be the absolute answer at the 2 spot but Yuma is making a push for the title and that meant Rodriguez' stock was as high as it would get. I think Les made the right call on that move. The real key will be to see what Reno gets back as a "player to be named later".
