They say that you're getting old when you can remember your favorite player comes into the league, and then retires. I guess I'm getting old now. Despite teams starting the likes of Jose Vidro and Aubrey Huff at DH, Mike Piazza was unable to find work this offseason, and has made the decision to retire .
It seems weird to think that not all that long ago the Dodgers actually had the best player in baseball, and even stranger to think that the team thought trading him was the answer to all of our problems. No matter what you think of the current regime, I couldn't envision them doing that.
