Therefore, fans also should not read anything more into the matter than just good fun between two division rivals. Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has shot imaginary arrows into the air after a save for the past few years, but this time, he did so before the game ended. In the bottom of the eighth on Sunday, Rodney got Cole Kalhoun to fly out to center field to end a threat and maintain the Mariners' 5-4…
