He was never making millions, but you would think the money would have lasted a little longer...

Sure he was. His high was 2.6 mil. His career earnings were 11.5 mil. I hate rich people stealing. His last team was the NYY. Another ex NYY to see jail or prison. I wonder if this counts as a blown save( i mean robbery)?

No! Not the terminator! :,-(

But, yeah, no pitty for the guy. $2 million in a checking account would earn $80,000 a year.

Seems like the guy was having a tough time.

This article comes from ESPN.com

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Jeff Reardon, one of the top relief pitchers in history, blamed medication for depression after his arrest for a jewelry store robbery.

Police said Tuesday that the 50-year-old Reardon, retired since 1994 and sixth in career saves, walked into Hamilton Jewelers at the Gardens Mall on Monday and handed an employee a note saying he had a gun and the store was being robbed.

Reardon, who starred with the Montreal Expos, Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox, fled the store with $170 in cash, according to a report in the Palm Beach Post.

Police found him at a nearby restaurant, recovered the stolen money and charged him with armed robbery.

Lt. David O'Neill said Reardon did not have a gun and offered no resistance when he was handcuffed.

"He said it was the medication that made him do it and that he was sorry,'' O'Neill said.

According to the arrest report cited in the Palm Beach Post, Reardon told police: "I am taking medication and am sorry for what happened ... I completely lost my mind and tried to rob (a) jewelry store. I flipped on my medications and didn't realize what I was doing."

O'Neill said Reardon has lived in the city for more than 20 years and has never caused any problems.

Reardon's attorney, Mitchell Beers, said that Reardon had taken antidepressants since his son's death in early 2004. In addition, he had taken additional medication after surgery last week.

"He asked me to apologize to his fans and friends,'' Beers said. "This bizarre incident is completely uncharacteristic of Jeff Reardon.''

Reardon made a brief appearance in court Tuesday and was to be released on $5,000 bail, Beers said. A judge ordered Reardon to undergo a mental health evaluation, according to the Post.

Reardon, who made more than $11.5 million in his career, according to baseball-reference.com, was not having any known financial problems, O'Neill said.

He had a save in the Twins' 1987 World Series victory over St. Louis. But five years later, Reardon gave up a decisive two-run homer to Toronto's Ed Sprague in the ninth inning, allowing the Blue Jays to tie Atlanta at one game apiece. Toronto eventually won the 1992 World Series in six games.

The four-time All-Star was 73-77 with 367 saves and a 3.16 ERA in 16 seasons with the New York Mets, Montreal, Minnesota, Boston, the Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees.

Information from the Associated Press is included in this story

I'm not defending the guy because stealing is always wrong but it's not like he has a Darryl Strawberry or Doc Gooden type history. This guy has slipped up once. Hopefully after making this horrible mistake he'll get some help.

Sell that stinky load of garbage to someone else. I'm not buying it. Blaming medication? Just stupid. Be a man and take full responsibility for doing something dumb. Don't try to blame it on anything else. Pathetic.
