K-Rod lobbies Mets brass to settle on roles for setup crew

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez has talked to manager Jerry Manuel and pitching coach Dan Warthen about the team’s revolving door when it comes to the eight-inning setup situation, according to the New York Daily News.

"It is tough because in preparation, you don’t know if you have to prepare for coming into the game with one out in the eighth or you may have to get two outs in the eighth to go into the ninth," Rodriguez said. "It’s a lot easier when you already know what’s going to be your guys. Who’s going to be the guy in front of you and you go by the game plan after that."
