Unblemished in his first six outings as a member of the Oakland A’s bullpen, Fernando Rodney offered up some bold quotes when he returned to Target Center on Thursday, the home of the Twins, his ex-employer.

“Oh, we’re going to the World Series, man,” the 41-year-old reliever told reporters in Minnesota.

Rodney, now in his 16th season in the bigs, is fitting right in with his green and gold teammates.

“We’ve got a good team,” Rodney said. “There’s a lot of talent in this bullpen. I’m chilling. I’m relaxed. No pressure on myself because we’ve got all these guys that have got stuff to close the game and beat Houston.”
