I have your little game here figured out Rodney, it was only a matter of time before I figured out too. It's a very simple game that he's playing here really, why do you think his performance has been so outstanding these past few series? Is it because of the change of delivery/mechanics fix that Butcher put down on Rodney? That is a part of what's fixing Rodneys game, but it's not the biggest component. Rodney is using fire and drive, only because he wants his closing job back, and he wants it bad.
What a guy, not only does he drastically improve the closer role, he improves the guy he replaced.
