    Jeff just needs to retire... I mean he isnt going to be able to play anymore and all he is doing is hurting Houston's chances of competing...

    If there were any chance he could still be able to play at even a decent level, I'd say to stick around... but he is not going to be able to much of anything to help Houston in any way

      Who would think that in this day and age a Large Insurance company would deny a claim??

        The claim was denied on March 13th, about 2 weeks before this bone spur thing was brought up. So now the Astros willl have to apeal on the grounds of these bone spurs.

        On a personal note, this is especially sad for me not only being a Houstonian, but as a fan who started watching baseball in 1991-Bagwell's rookie season here in Houston. This is truly the end of an era.

          Someone mentioned on another board that Bagwell had signed a long-term deal which was back-loaded, like many other long-term deals. In addition to the injury, could it be possible that the Astros simply don't wish to pay him?

            Drayton McLane (the Astros owner) made a habbit of these big back loaded contracts in the past few years and it's starting to catch up to him. For instance, he owes Andy Petitte $7.5 million in 2008 even though 2006 is the last year of his contract.
