"I feel great. I feel happy,'' Rodney said after learning of his All-Star selection. "I made the team because (the Rays) gave me the chance to pitch. I didn't have too many chances last year so I can show I can pitch. This year it happened. I'd like to tell Mike Scioscia thank you."
Scioscia shrugged off the apparently sarcastic remark from Rodney who has complained publicly more than once about his use by Scioscia (including late last season).
