    Interesting that Sullivan has dropped all the way from #6 before 1950 to #151 after 1950.

    There are only two Sullivans on current rosters: Brett (Rays org) and Zach (Marlins org).

    There is one Rodriguez in MLB prior to 1950. Jose Rodriguez, from Cuba, played for the New York Giants in 1916-18. I wonder what his story was.
