It sounds like he's done playing as of now.

 

Does this mean that he played his last game without anyone knowing it was hist last?

As of now or after the season? Either way one of my favorites, shame about all that DL time in Cincy he truly could have been the greatest.

 

 

As on today he has officially retired.

 

What a great career he had even with injuries that followed him from 2002 on.

I honestly believe if he didn't miss part of 2001 and 2006 and then half of the 1995, 2003 and 2004 seasons he could have easily hit 750 and probably the only guy most people ever thought would break 800.

 

Congrats to Ken for all of his accomplishments in his career and I hope he lives a great life with his wife and kids.

I'll always remember him as "The Kid" in the 90's who flew in the outfield and on the bases along with his picture perfect swing and I hope one day I can do what he did.

It's a shame he had to go out on such a down note. If only there were some substance out there that aging ballplayers could take which would allow them to maintain or even increase their bodily strength over the years, thus allowing them to stave off a potential decline and actually allow them to have career years well into their late thirties.

I guess old Ken fell asleep in the clubhouse again so they forced him to retire?

 

 

Nah, they didn't force him to retire, least that's not what he said in his statement. From what I remember, he said if he ever thought he had become a distraction, he would retire as to not hurt the team, or something along those lines.

They didn't force him to retire, but he seemed to indicate that they weren't giving him enough PT to improve his performance and that was a factor.

Imagine what Bonds could have done if there was that substance out there. Probably woulda hit a thousand homers.

My bet is closer to 762.
