Just yesterday, we got this from Joe:Michael (New York) : What Tigers hitters do you see breaking out during the next few games in St. Louis?
SportsNation Joe Morgan: I'm surprised that Pudge Rodriguez is 0 for his last 16 or 17 or whwatever, because he's such a good hitter. Part of the reason he's struggling is because he's a catcher and he's worn down. With the week off, I thought he'd be rejuvenated. So he's the guy I'd pick to break out and they need him!
As of right this second, Pudge is now 0 for his last 23, the longest hitless streak of his career
. His last hit came in the seventh inning of Game 1 of the ALCS ... fifteen days ago.
This is his line for the playoffs:
5-40, .125/.182/.225, OPS of .407, 3 BB, 9 K
If Alex Rodriguez does that in next year's playoffs, he will be drawn and quartered and then they will tar and feather his quarters.
