COMPARING A PAIR OF SOX – THE FIRST 50 GAMES OF EDUARDO RODRIGUEZ AND CARLOS RODON

If you asked me what the two greatest websites of all-time are, off the top of my head I would say Google.com and Baseball-Reference.com. But that’s just me, you can choose what you like.

Here is a little exercise I did on B-R comparing the performance of two outstanding young Sox pitchers: Eduardo Rodriguez of the Red Sox and Carlos Rodon of the White Sox over the course of their first 50 games and you will see great similarities.

Does this mean anything? I’m sure you can stretch and write a column about it if you desire, but I just think it’s fun

Just to let you know, Rodon is now up to 54 games, but don’t let spoil your good time.

Eduardo is 24 – Carlos is 23
