Pudge by the Numbers

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.

Anything bat is better than Molina's bat. Although, Molina had a nice game yesterday.

There is a letter collecting campaign going on right now where fans can write their thoughts on what a great owner they think Steinbrenner is, and send them to:
Letter for the Veterans Committee
5890 Bethelview Rd S10-115
Cumming, Ga. 30040
The letters are not wanted in petition form, but thoughts, and feelings about Mr. Steinbrenner. The letters that are collected will be placed in plastic protective covers, and into binders. The binder will then be sent to the Veterans committee prior to there meeting next year. The goal is to collect at least 1000 letters. They do not have to include your full name and address, first name last inital with the town and state is fine. Letters have already started coming in from Yankee alumni, so this is a chance to have your voice heard with theirs.

The rules state owners can be active, but need 10 years of service and have to be over 65.....He should be in already, what do you think?
