Point blank, Ivan Rodriguez is one the best catchers in the history of baseball. You would be hard pressed to find someone with a legitimate argument to that statement, and chances are most people would put Rodriguez and his 12 gold gloves and 48% caught stealing percentage at one or two all time. But so far this season Rodriguez has not been his usual self and opposing teams have taken notice.
