Pudge Rodriguez Gone......

Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez was traded today to the New York Yankees for reliever Kyle Farnsworth. It was 2004, the year before the Tigers lost an AL record 119 games, the team was in shambles, that all changed when Pudge decided to be a Tiger at 4 yrs $40 Million. After Pudge came the whole organization changed. Big name free agents were no longer out of reach, the team became respectable again. As a Tiger Pudge hit .298 with 62 HRs and 300 RBIs, worth every penny, Pudge will always be a well respected Tiger, he was a great player & a great person. He will be missed. Good luck Pudge!

Aww...this would make me really sad if I was a Tigers fan. I know a lot of people love this guy.

But, I'm a Red Sox fan, so I'll save my sadness for when they trade Ortiz.
