According to ABC News (abcnews.go.com/Sports) last night the Texas Rangers stuck rookie Guilder Rodriguez at second base. “So what?” you ask. According to the story Rodriguez spent ten years in the minor leagues and played 1095 games in them. That number is an all-time record. No one else ever played 1095 games in the modern minors (since the advent of the farm system) without making it to the Major Leagues. He went 0-3 with a walk and played well at second. Congratulations to the Rangers for finally giving him a chance. And congratulations to Rodriguez for having more loyalty to a game than most of us. Welcome to the Big Leagues, Guilder Rodriguez.
