Rodney had just a phenomenal season. The improvement is really hard to believe after watching him with the Tigers. Even in his best year, he was always dancing on the edge of disaster, always putting men on base, so there was no feeling of loss when he signed with the Dodgers. It will be interesting to see if he can repeat this performance next year.
