    So Bidge really has played in 100 games at new Busch?
    More horrible writing by Alyson Footer, the worst baseball writer in the business.

    I knew it was coming, but I still feel shocked for some reason.

    Going to be strange not seeing Biggio out there....just like it was with out Jeff.

    Bidge was a huge part of my childhood life and I will always remember him for all that he did for the Astros and the City of Houston.

    Hopefully he will be able to be involved with the organization and city for a long long time.

    LOL, I noticed that too. I was thinking didn't they get a new park?

    Footer scooped the Associated Press, ESPN, the Chronicle and every other news organization in the world on this story. But yeah, one minor technicality (it's still Busch, still on the same grounds) and it's horrible. Hilarious.

    I've asked you numerous times... put up or shut up. Examples of this "horrible writing" now. Not baseless generalizations that come off sounding like a personal grudge as opposed to a real complaint, because that's how it's looked before.

    All I can say is...

    Thank you, Craig Biggio. It was a great 20 years watching you play the way the game should be played.

    I don't think it will really hit me until next Feb. when there is no #7 in spring training. I've already discussed with my wife that I will be taking my son to Cooperstown in 5 years.

    Actually, I'm selfishly hoping that Bagwell isn't 1st ballot HOF'er so that they can go in together.

    Dude. Go back and look at my old posts regarding her. I have provided examples of her pure speculation that is made out to look like news. Either go back and look at what i've posted, or failing that, read just about any of her writings (past or present).

    I'm just now getting used to not seeing Bagwell at first every night. Now this.

    I figured this year was the year.

    Will Ausmus retire this year too?

    I agree, it was really tough not seeing Baggy out there, now I will really miss Bidge, alot of us grew up with those guys as our heros! I too will go to Cooperstown if they both go in same year, mark my word!
