Ousted Brewers closer Jim Henderson appeared on 1250 WSSP Tuesday morning, a day after the first save opportunity of the season unexpectedly went to Francisco Rodriguez. A variety of topics were discussed in the interview, but they got the big question out of the way early: what happened?

Quoth Hendo:

“Nothing happened. It’s something I’ve been through since I’ve been in Milwaukee, you get moved and and out. Whoever’s throwing the ball best, that’s who you want in the 9th. … I know I didn’t have a great spring, but I was successful at the end of spring and hopefully we can continue that.”

Did Ron Roenicke talk to him at all before making the decision to put K-Rod in the 9th?

“Ron talked to me two days ago on our off day. It was a little shocking, you have to admit that, but at the same time I understand. I wasn’t throwing the ball well in spring. The ball wasn’t coming out the way it was last year. It was 91-94, okay for most people, but that’s not how I need to be pitching.”

So if he isn’t the Capital-C-Closer, what’s his role right now?

“That’s a mystery to me. (laughs) We’ll see how it goes. I think it’d be great to just get out there, I don’t really care what inning right now. I just want to go out there and compete.”
