Moises Alou Likely To Retire

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch talked to outfielder Moises Alou, who is likely to retire.  Alou said:

"I’m going home after this.  I haven’t decided 100 percent. But it looks like it. It looks like it.  I’m tired of the nagging injuries — my calf, my quad, my hammy, everyday something different.  It got to the point that I didn’t trust going out there.  Everybody wants me to keep playing. I know the feelings inside — the pains and aches. Sometimes it is time to let it go. It’s not forever.  This is my last rodeo, like you guys say.  It’s a nice one."

Alou would finish with a career line of .303/.369/.516 for the Pirates, Expos, Marlins, Astros, Cubs, Giants, and Mets.  He hit 332 home runs and banked almost $86MM.
