Rod and Mark

Rodrigo (Munoz) Lopez is currently a pitcher with the Diamondbacks.  He was orginially signed by the Padres out of a Mexican League in 2000 and made his major league debut in 2001.  He signed with the Orioles as a free agent and had a great year, being the runner up in the AL ROY voting.  He played for the Orioles from 2002-2006, then the Rockies, Phillies and now the Dbacks.  I got this signed through the mail while Rodrigo was with the O's.  Mark David Loretta is one of only 2 Padres with 200 hits in a season, the other being Tony Gwynn, Sr.  Loretta played for the Brewers for 8 years then went to Houston for a year came over from the Astros and was the Padres MVP in 2003 & 2004.  He played for the Red Sox and Astros, before calling it a career after the 2009 season with the Dodgers.  He is currently a special assistant to the baseball operations staff of the Padres.  I got this signed through the mail while Mark was with the Padres..
