K-Rod Will Be A Major Force In 2011

Before that unfortunate altercation ended his season, Francisco Rodriguez was well on his way to a tremendous campaign in 2010.

According to ESPN, one of the reasons for his improved performance last season was that he threw more first-pitch strikes than ever before, a […]

The delay is all because of his suspension from using illegal performance enhancing drugs and violating baseball’s policy on banned substances. He was supposed to […]
