Late Wednesday the word began to spread that Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez would retire Monday as a Texas Ranger. This event will mark the end to the career of one of the greatest catchers of all time and arguably the best Texas Ranger ever. For 13 years he was in Arlington and gave his best for the team and the fans. Hopefully it will be just a matter of time until his number 7 is retired in RBiA. Thanks Pudge for all the memories.
