  • How many to end career this year?

    So Chipper Jones is retiring, but this could be a big competitive HOF class coming out this year.

    Rivera might not make it back, and Thome, and there is at least one other strong candidate who does not come to mind immediately. Who is likely to retire, and who among them might have to wait a year?

    Possibles or probables:
    Chipper
    Thome
    Rivera
    Vlad Guerrero
    Manny Ramirez
    Helton
    Tejada
    Abreu
    Damon?
    Ichiro?
    Rolen

    If Chipper, Thome, Rivera and Guerrero are all in this retirement class who is likely to wait at least a year?

        Do we think Francisco Cordero is going to play next year?

          Jamie Moyer
          Andy Pettitte?
          Bartolo Colon seems a likely candidate, with the PED suspension and the fact that he's 39 years old.
          Jason Giambi is 41
          Raul Ibanez is 40 and has an OBP under .300
          My top 10 players:

          1. Babe Ruth
          2. Barry Bonds
          3. Ty Cobb
          4. Ted Williams
          5. Willie Mays
          6. Alex Rodriguez
          7. Hank Aaron
          8. Honus Wagner
          9. Lou Gehrig
          10. Mickey Mantle

            Mo is coming back, if you believe what he says.

              I think Berkman mentioned retirement during this season as well.

                Before the season I wrote that I thought he'd pitch 5 more years and finish with 750 saves.

                If he did retire though, and Chipper, Thome and Vlad do to, who gets in in the first year?

                  I think it'd be Chipper & Mo - lifers with one team.

                    Roger Clemens too. Are you forgetting he's gonna pitch at least a couple of innings?

                      Jason Kendall has been in Minor League ball this year for a little bit, but not in the Majors since 2010. He's 36

                        Any potential HOF managers looking to retire?

                          Vlad hasn't gotten a major league at bat this year, so he would be eligible a year ahead of these guys. Chipper and Omar have said they ARE retiring, and Omar wants to manage a major league team right away.

                              I do believe Rivera will be back. Of the four, I don't see Vlad as a first-ballot guy.
