Very cool moment last night:

The greatest player in Texas Rangers history - now a Houston Astro - smacks a 5th-inning homer and receives a standing ovation. Stay classy, Arlington.

On a day when Toby Harrah and Ruben Sierra were elected into the Rangers' Hall of Fame, Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez reminded us that he is the best player to ever wear a Texas uniform.

Right?

During his short stint as the franchise's best thrower - I said thrower, not pitcher - Nolan Ryan may have been a smidge more popular. But Pudge, who began his 12-year career as a 19-year-old in 1991, won an MVP, played on three division champs and is a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Pudge's solo shot off Kevin Millwood came in a 6-1 Rangers' win and his 2,226th career game at catcher, tying Carlton Fisk for baseball's record.

Though iconic voices Eric Nadel and Chuck Morgan might quarrel a tad, Pudge is firmly atop my list of the 10 greatest all-time Rangers.
