Tigers closer Francisco Rodriguez with some poignant thoughts on if he ever imagined getting to career save No. 400: "Never. When I came here to the States to the big leagues, I was just a kid with a lot of dreams, but never, not even crossed my mind ... You never expected that... I don't play for numbers. I play this game because I love it. I had it in my veins and that's the only thing that, honestly, I know how to do well. It had nothing to do with records or anything like that."
