    Re: Ok, I'm really sad now

    He's had a good, full, healthy career with the same team the whole time, which doesn't happen very often anymore. I'd be satisfied with that at least.

    See, that's not even funny. I saw that headline and my heart sank. I didn't realize it wasn't ISU related until I got into it.

    phew. At least he doesnt have to play the mets anymore. Anyone who names his kid Shea since he always owned the mets in Shea Stadium is welcome to retire in my books. Never wish the injuries though.

    He sits every fourth game. His body is beat uup. He needed to go American league as a designated hitter for Yankees.

    Re: Ok, I'm really sad now

    Can you add "MLB:" to the thread title?

    I read the thread title and immediately thought that the Big 12 had fallen apart again...

    As a Mets fan, I don't know who I will hate now.

    My theory is that Chipper just can't afford going through 2 cans of chew a day.

    I'll tell you what my parents told me about my favorite family dog. "He is going to live on a farm where he has lots of open fields to run in a play all day."

    Re: Ok, I'm really sad now

    Easily one of my favorite players of all time. Has quietly put up some monster numbers over his career, will likely retire with 430+ HR, 1500+ RBI, and a .306 career avg.

    No exaggeration here and anyone who knows me can back this up. Chipper is my favorite athlete of all time. No questions asked.

    I don't know, Lenny Dykstra has to be in the discussion there too. Of course, he mixed his with bubble gum too, so that may have made it look like he chewed more than he did.
