Man, it's an absolute shame he'll be retiring the year the Astros are in the cellar.

ESPN - Craig Biggio to retire after 20 seasons in baseball


    HOUSTON -- Houston Astros infielder Craig Biggio plans to retire at the end of the season after a 20-year career in which he joined the elite 3,000-hit club.

    "I get to go out on top. The 3,000th hit night was the best. I'll never forget that," Biggio said at a news conference Tuesday. "I'm in a good place. I think I've done everything I could on a baseball field."

    The 41-year-old Biggio got his 3,000th hit on June 28.

    "I just can't believe it's over. It's gone by fast," he said. "I have no regrets. I played the game the right way."


One of the true class acts in baseball. It's really too bad he didn't get that championship ring, but at least he got a shot at the World Series towards the twilight of what was an awesome career. He'll have his number retired very soon, I'd imagine.

The second most games played among active players, behind only Bonds. This is the end of an era for the Astros. There won't be another like him for a long time.

As much as I don't like him, Bonds was the right choice. Pujols dropped off down the stretch and the Cards went with him. Bonds, on the other hand, played it out the whole way. Can't argue with this choice.
