K-Rod signed a three-year, $37.5MM deal with the Mets almost three years ago to the day (Dec. 9, 2008). He rewarded them with 168 innings of 3.05 ERA ball to go along with 83 saves and a 10.0 K/9 before he was dealt to the Brewers this past summer. He was even better in Milwaukee, striking out 33 in 29 innings and posting a sparkling 1.86 ERA while setting up for John Axford.
Rodriguez has said that he's seeking a three-year deal and a closing job this offseason, and is arguably the top reliever on the market now that Jonathan Papelbon and Heath Bell have signed.
