Josh Willingham retiring


Recommended Posts

I remember threads here where we were screaming for the front office to call him up.


Good hitter, good guy.



Yea, I remember they just couldn't figure out how to get him up here being blocked by LoDuca/Miggy/Choi in '04 and LoDuca/Miggy/Delgado in '05. Finally got him into LF when they were able to move Lowell to Boston and put Miggy at third. I was surprised that when they finally gave him a chance to start, after all the time they invested with him as a catcher, they didn't leave him there despite a vacancy. I guess when your OF has the likes of Chris Aguila/Eric Reed/Reggie Abercrombie/Joe Borchard roaming around you gotta do what you gotta do, lol.

One of my favorite Marlins for the few years he was around. Sad to see him go.



Surprising. I think he still had a few good years left.



He always had terrible knees, probably finally caught up with him. His career would have never gotten off the ground if it wasn't for cortisone shots.
