When I reported that the Orioles had held a brief workout for lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes at Camden Yards on Thursday, I received a whole lot of age jokes on my Twitter account.
For once, they weren’t aimed at me.
Rhodes, who didn’t pitch professionally in 2012 and was last seen winning a World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, turned 43 in October. (That’s actually slightly older than me, so take that).
I think the best line I saw on Twitter was from the guy who asked me if Rhodes had developed a deer-antler spitball to get hitters out. Hey, insulting and topical.
Honestly, it's very unlikely that Rhodes will receive an invitation...
