Pudge

A big hats off to Ivan Rodriguez.  A couple days ago, he took over the number one slot from Carlton Fisk by catching in his 2227th game.  In my opinion, this is a super human feat and as amazing as any baseball record out there….steroids or no steroids.

Although I don’t know him personally, I played against him a whole bunch.  He was always a pleasure to compete against. He played the game hard, with passion and respect. He’s a hard nosed guy who keeps getting up and coming back for more when he gets knocked down. A gifted athlete and a player’s player. Nice job Ivan.

Yep, you're numero uno.

    Unrelated: I saw Manny Ramirez play for the San Bernardino 66′ers last night..

    It was pretty rad.. felt like you were at a high school game watching him… but, pretty sad.. when he struck out twice.. the kid who struck him out has to be stoked though. :)
