Craig Biggio to retire the end of season...

9 posts in this topic

Going to be sad to see him leave. He has been a class act all of his career. I can still see him wearing those god aweful colored uniforms they use to wear.

Any fan would have loved to have him on thier team. These are an approximations but his stats are 3000+ hits, 300 HR, 1200 RBI, 500 SB, .280 avg. He could bat anywhere in the order and play anywhere in the field and be effective.

If I had a vote for the HOF he would get it.

If I remember right, he started his career as a catcher...then moved to the outfield and eventually second base to prolong his career.

Seems to have worked....

I have always loved to watch him play on the field. Very Class Player that baseball will miss him when he's done. Im pretty sure he wont be out of baseball, just playing it.

You'll never see another player spend his career with one team and get 3,000 hits. Too bad that Bags broke down and didn't achieve his HOF numbers, too.

Last night after he officially announced it to the crowd, he goes and hits a grand slam in the game... What a player. When my kids grow up and ask me who were the best players in my time, Kirby, Biggio, and Jeter will be at the top of the list, all three played the game the way it is supposed to be played. Full of heart, and NEVER take a play off. wink.gif

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
