Quad Cities Manager Johnny Rodriguez Speaks

Exclusive interview with Quad Cities River Bandits manager Johnny Rodriguez as his club is pushing to earn a post-season spot.

After Friday's win over Peoria, the Quad Cities River Bandits maintained their ½ game lead over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers for the second Midwest League Western Division first half playoff spot. Quad Cities' magic number is now two.

I spoke with manager Johnny Rodriguez prior to Thursday's contest. In this exclusive interview, we spoke at length about his 2011 team and of course, many of its players.
