Pudge, Jorge, and Jason


That makes three long tenured catchers gone from the game now that Pudge Rodriguez retired yesterday. Posada and Varitek retired over the winter. They say things come in threes. Not sure how true that cliche is, but it is in this case. Posada and Varitek were both very good players, but Rodriguez was the best of them.

I may be one of the few people who care about this, but Pudge (or Irod) is no longer the most linkable active player. I figured that that honor would fall to Omar Vizquel. I was wrong. Jamie Moyer is the current active Kevin Bacon of baseball. He also has connections to college hoops through his father-in-law Digger Phelps, but that’s a story for another day.
