It wasn’t a save, but Fernando Rodney fired his first arrow with the Mariners and his teammates completely ignored him.
Aaron Giddens of BRaysball Talk first brought this to our attention and it is a bit funny, but also possibly worrisome for Rodney.
With the Rays, Carlos Pena was the first to engage in the post-game celebration with Rodney (possibly at the encouragement of Joe Maddon). It then became a community effort, that peaked with the Dominican team at the World Baseball Classic.
Poor Honey Badger. Let’s hope he still doesn’t care.
We still love you, Fernando.
