Rodriguez is very iffy unless he gets traded to an AL team where he can be the DH and be in the line up more.

If he's traded to the Giants he will be an instant starter.Eli Whiteside and Chris Stweart are good for 3 hits a week combined.
But they already have their starting catcher for the next few years with Posey. 

I give Rodriguez credit, he has lasted forever as a catcher, but its caught up to him, and sadly either going to 1B or DH are the only real options available for him to get the necessary hits, as his days as a starting catcher are limited

When he had that cup of coffee with the Yanks, I thought he was done.  He was just awful.  And that was a few years back and he's still hanging in there.  I don't think he makes 3,000 though.

I agree. He was like Cervelli is now and he's my age. Irod has to have the most seasons ever played at the catching position. What he's done in all of these years is pretty incredible. I don't think he'll be able to straighten his knees past the age of 55 but that's another story.

He's also another Roid guy.
Is he?  I cant recall reading anything about him doing them
