thought this was interesting news for all in keeper leagues....

from rotoworld:

Jeff Kent - 2B - HOU Tix to All Astros Games


Jeff Kent is talking about retirement.
Late in the 2002 season, Kent said he'd retire if the Giants won the World Series, which they did not. He's now in the final season of a two-year contract with Houston. When asked if he might consider returning to San Francisco, he said, "San Francisco? I don't even know if I'm going to play next year. Guys, I don't even know if I'll be back at all, and don't read too much into this." Kent said he's having fun playing, but he has more fun with his kids and riding his motorcycles.

Thanks ensanimal. Kent is probably a borderline keeper anyways in league that keep only a few players. This makes it clear that he should probably not be kept for next season..

true in shallow leagues, he should not be a keeper anyways.....but in deep leagues, this definitely puts you in a dilemna of holding onto him or not and you just hope he retires right after season and not the day before spring training starts..............

Hmmm.......I was thinking of trading him in my keeper anyway. This only helps the decision to be a bit easier. I bet he plays next year anyway, but thanks for the article! ;-D

Glad I traded him and Crosby for Nomar :-)

Didn't help too much for this year, but at least Nomar will be productive for a while (if he gets healthy over the summer :-o )

I'd be moving him in a keeper anyway if I could. He's not getting any younger. :-[

I trade him to a guy desperate for a keeper second-baseman as the solution to his problems, of course than again he's probably reading this post too...

if you have kent in a keeper and are in a semi knowledgeable league his vaule just went down a few notchs imo. Anyway kent retires houston will move biggio back to 2nd imo and yes they will pick up biggios 1 year extra option then after that expires biggios will also probably reitre with bagwell next season thus making the astros a sucky team for many years to come.

Chris Burke will be starting at 2B next year in Houston. Should be a Rookie of the Year contender as well, depending on his spot in the lineup. Long term, he is a top of the lineup hitter.

I do agree Biggio and Bagwell will likely retire together whenever the latter player's contract is up (I'm guessing after the 2005 season by your statement). I don't believe Biggio will change positions -- with or without resigning Beltran.
