Francisco Rodriguez says he’s fine with being traded to Milwaukee despite previously indicating he did not want to be dealt to the club. When he signed with the Mets after the 2008 season he and his former agent, Paul Kinzer, created a list of 10 teams he did not want to be traded to, and Milwaukee was on that list. K-Rod said his agent never sent the letter to the players association or major league baseball.

K-Rod said Milwaukee was on the list because it had an established closer in Trevor Hoffman (now retired). “That was my No. 1 reason. At that time Hoffman was here,” he said. “That’s not an issue at all. I’m a Brewer now. I just want to win.”
