08:09 AM ET 02.06 | Life after playing is about to get busier for Ivan Rodriguez. The Rangers are still trying to finalize a permanent role for [Rodriguez] in the organization, but do expect him to be in spring training for a portion of the time helping work with catchers. No dates for Rodriguez to visit Surprise, Ariz., have been finalized. Hector Ortiz, the Rangers' catching coordinator, will handle the bulk of the responsibilities, but Rodriguez could also get on the field and work with catchers while he is there. Rodriguez officially retired as a Ranger last June. Both he and front office officials indicated a desire to have him work for the club in some capacity. A year ago, Ortiz rotated between the minors and majors during the regular season to tutor catchers.

Jesus Montero's, too. Upcoming rookies as well as established stars.
Is it no wonder fans look at the game with a jaundiced and jaded eye?

Yep - I will give the benefit of the doubt for those not on any lists or other scrapes, however, I refuse to be "surprised" if someone were to show up dirty..... And yes - that includes AP....

Just out of curiosity - in the top right of this page in the Sports Illustrated Video - what do you all see as the video.... Our work connection does a lot of cacheing and I am just wondering - because I have the same video from mid NFL season....

Yes better - some coughing because of drainage but doing well and at work. Able to focus a little better than yesterday. So work won't be as draining.
