Nothing to do with LUCK

"I guess its tough luck for us," closer Frankie Rodriguez  
 What kind of quote is this? Has nothing to do with bad luck has everything to do with throwing a 93 mph fastball middle in, thigh high to a guy that has almost 500 HR's in the bigs. Not to mention he is also a lifetime .300 hitter in 15 big league season's (winning run on 2nd).
The more I watch him the more he makes me wonder how he can get anyone out. He has not a clue as to what is going on out on the mound. When asked what the thought was when pitching to Manny he was quoted saying "there was no  plan" Huh? Please someone help!
 How can he be a guy sent in to save games? He is awful in 1 run games. Should a runner reach base (WHIP 1.25) they will be stealing a base on the next pitch (1.76) to the plate. His numbers are declining, and hitters seem to be a little more comfortable. This is the guy to trade. We might be able to fool someone and get a hitter in return. There are enough guys in and around the organization to pitch one solid inning. There is however not enough guys that have the power production the Angels need.
 I am sure there is a lot of people reading this thinking no way! Just look at it this way the Astros almost ran B. Lidge out of Houston and his numbers are the same. NY Yankee fans and media are talking about M. Rivera being done, but even though his numbers were not all that great this year I would still take him over F "ing" Rodriquez! Also most relief pitchers came into the game as SP and in some cases they were not even signed as pitchers. So lets get over 2002 and the K-Rod thing and move on.
