Here are a few interesting numbers on the newest Yankee, Ivan Rodriguez,
He's a career .283 hitter in Yankee stadium. (And a career .302 hitter in Fenway)
He doesn't walk. He only walked 9 (Nine!) times last season... He's managed 19 walks so far this season.
He has a.240 .Avg this season with RISP, and with 2 outs and RISP he's hitting .216
He's also listed as hitting .196 in "late and close" situations.
Pudge is an improvement at the plate, but he's a roleplayer now, not a superstar. He's turned it on lately, hitting .350 over his last 16 games so let's just hope that lasts another few months.
