Francisco Rodriguez

Francisco Jose "K-Rod" or "Frankie" Rodriguez
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 175 lbs.
Born: January 7, 1982 in Caracas, Venezuela
Signed: 1998 by the Anaheim Angels
Acquired: as a free agent, December 2008
Departed: traded to the Milwaukee Brewers with cash for two players to be named later (
Danny Herrera and Adrian Rosario), July 2011

 

Set the all-time single-season saves record in 2008 for the Angels and then came to the Mets that winter. Had a solid big-league career that somehow seemed to fall just a little short, based solely on the prodigious hype that followed his spectacular late-season rookie debut.  Pictured is 2003 Topps; more cards are pictured below.
