Ivan "Pudgy" Rodriquez, completely overrated?

I don't see what the big deal is with this guy. Plus he admitted/implicated in Steroid use. He is no Varitek or even a Posada. No HOF IMHAO.

    i think so. like all steroid users before they get caught, fans regard them as great, but as soon as we see them for what they really are, they're not that special anymore. he was a good defensive catcher and a good hitter, but when you realize that he cheated, he's not that good anymore.

    he is not even close to being overrated. In his prime he wa the most feared catcher offensively and defensively. He had the defensive abilities of yadier molina with the hitting abilities of mike piazza. There is no way you can call that overrated. Id like to see a better overall catcher in the past 20 years.

    Pudge is the best overall catcher in the history of the game.

    Jose Canseco said that Pudge used them... but that's not proof (like we have seen with A-Rod, Palmiero and McGwire).

    Rodriquez is one of the top five catchers in the game

    No not at all, he's the best defensive catcher of this generation and one of the best offensive catcher's of this generation. Your lack of baseball knowledge shows in each and every one of your questions and answers.

    He was a God among baseball players. If you ignore that steroids thing that is.
