Ivan Rodriguez made it clear during the final series of the season that he planned to spend a lot of time this offseason working on his hitting with Rudy Jaramillo. He said he was going to work with Jaramillo both in Dallas and Miami. Now that Jaramillo is out of the Texas equation, does that mean Rodriguez no longer would like to return here? The guess here is yes. One of the main reasons Rodriguez wanted to come back to Arlington was to work with Jaramillo. Without Rudy and with Rodriguez free to sign wherever he wants, I don't think it will be with the Rangers.
