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.
