Francisco Rodriguez wants $10 million to sign | HardballTalk

I thought K-Rod‘s 8-figure salary days were over since Omar Minaya is no longer a major league GM, but I guess he still thinks he’s worth that much to some team. The Dodgers have certainly been willing to spend big money on other players, but I agree with Aaron Gleeman – they can come up with a more creative solution to their short-term closer problem..

Kenley Jansen being out 2-3 months following foot surgery led to speculation that the Dodgers may be interested in Francisco Rodriguez, with Bob Nightingale of USA Today reporting that the free agent right-hander “is seeking a $10 million contract.”

Last week reports had Rodriguez holding out for a two-year deal, but presumably if the price if high enough–and $10 million would certainly be high enough–he’d consider a one-year pact.

Of course, for now at least there’s no indication that the Dodgers are actually pursuing Rodriguez and if any team is willing to go forward without their closer by not acquiring another “proven closer” it’s the one with Andrew Friedman in charge.
