About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

One of the best all-around hitters in the game, Ramirez led the American League in home runs (43) and slugging percentage (.613) while ranking 3rd in RBI (130). Ramirez was selected to his 8th All-Star Game (1995, 1998-2004), received his 7th Silver Slugger Award (1995, 1999-2004) and was named the American League recipient of the 2004 Hank Aaron Award which recognizes the outstanding offensive player in each league.
