Good-Bye to Baseball’s Most Indispensable Player
Pudge Rodriguez is expected to retire as a Texas Ranger on Monday. My all-time favorite player, and arguably the Rangers franchise best, will fittingly leave the game at a time when his former team is arguably at its franchise best. It has become a recent trend for departing free agents to take out full-page newspaper ads thanking their former teams. In this case, it wouldn’t be surprising to see fans take out an ad thanking the player.
