Fernando Rodney arranged his own replacement

In a move worthy of the late shift at the supermarket, new Angel Fernando Rodney was apparently instrumental in bringing Jose Valverde to the Tigers, in part so that he wouldn't feel bad about bailing.

"All the time, I talked to Fernando he told me, 'There's a good energy over there. You'd be happy over there because everybody, the GM, the manager, everybody's good over there."
