PLAYER PROFILE: JOELY RODRIGUEZ I’ve talked a lot about Rodriguez lately, but with his first start of the 2011 season coming tonight, I figure one more time is appropriate.  I first saw Rodriguez with the Spikes last year.  I wasn’t expecting much, considering his low strikeout numbers.  I was surprised when I saw him throwing 88-92 MPH that night, and even more impressed when I received reports that he touched 94 at times...
