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 games?and most of it is not even about the hit its about the walk..that?s 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 you?ll see Fernando back out there.?

Asked if he were worried about Rodney?s confidence Maddon said, ?I?m sure it?s bothering him. You?d have to ask him that?I?m not going to run away from guys when they are struggling a little bit and I don?t think he?s struggling a lot. It?s a little bit.?
