"This place has been amazing, since I've been back a couple of days," Rodriguez said of PNC Park. "Atlanta, I don't know, being a new field, I don't know if they're still trying to get a feel for how it's going to work, but I would definitely give this field a way bigger edge than Atlanta right now."
"(The reception from the crowd) was pretty cool," said Rodriguez, who spent the previous two seasons with the Pirates before signing with the Braves in November. "The fans showing me that much love, I definitely felt it. Deep down, I never felt like I stopped being a Pirate."
