RHP Fernando Rodney set the team record Thursday with his 46th save and is threatening Dennis Eckersley's all-time relief record ERA of 0.61. But manager Joe Maddon said RHP Joel Peralta deserves some credit as Rodney's setup man and constant companion. What Maddon doesn't have is a nickname for them: "Whatever the Dominican version of Batman and Robin is. How do you say Batman and Robin in Spanish?"
