Vlad Guerrero to retire


Recommended Posts

I heard yesterday that Vlad is one of a few professional athletes that has invested well enough to support the 8 kids from 5 mothers! Apparently he pays $25,000 to each each month in child support...something crazy like that.

He was a great player, fun to watch for most of his career and I wish him well in supporting those kids in the future.

It's awesome that he had 50 minor league PAs this year and hasn't walked. In fact, you have to go back across six minor league teams and various rehab assignments to find his last minor league walk.

Didn't he reel off close to a 100 abs to start the year last season w/o drawing a walk?

Vlad Guerrero doesn't go up there to walk. Especially when he's DHing in the MiLs; he's going to get his hacks in.

He has only played in 11 minor league games so far this year. He hit 4 HR in 4 games at high-A.

Seems like it's a tad early for him to suddenly throw in the towel, unless TOR is telling him that they don't need him now and he wants to opt out to get to the majors somewhere else.

I'm sure he thinks in his mind he still has a shot at 500 HR (51 away) and 3,000 hits (410 away).

Apparently the Jays had a sort of deadline date to promote Vlad to the majors, I guess built into his contract. The date passed, they didn't promote Vlad, so he just packed up his bags and left AAA. Very interesting to see if another team goes after him now. You figure it will have to be an AL team right. Who could use a DH?

The teams with the worst OPS at the DH position this season are:

Tampa - .650

Oakland - .650

Detroit - .604

Seattle - .550

There are some potential playoff teams in there......hmmmmm.......
