Maddon On Rodney, He is just one pitch away"

After the game Joe Maddon reiterated that his confidence in Fernando Rodney remains high and that he[Rodney] is just one pitch away from nearly being perfect in a lot of these gamesand most of it is not even about the hit its about the walk..thats the more important thing to do is eliminate the walk. He said if we are in a save situation tomorrow night and everything flows I think youll see Fernando back out there.

Asked if he were worried about Rodneys confidence Maddon said, Im sure its bothering him. Youd have to ask him thatIm not going to run away from guys when they are struggling a little bit and I dont think hes struggling a lot. Its a little bit.
