Bret Boone call it quits

Postby Fenway05 » Wed Mar 01, 2006 4:17 pm reports

Mar. 1 Bret Boone announced his retirement on Wednesday, according to the AP. "Something I've loved my whole life has become a major, major job for me," Boone said. "I don't think it would be fair for me - or fair to the Mets - to continue something I've loved my whole life and had so much passion for, and all of a sudden that passion isn't there anymore." Boone split last season between Seattle and Minnesota, batting .231 with seven homers and 34 RBI in 74 games.

its about time, there was no need for him to ruin his image any longer, he will now be remembered by many as a bum, but he had a great career

^Great career by using 'roids! I don’t like either of the Boones because they cheated.

Bret Boone was filthy with the roids. What was the deal in the 2000 off-season? Not only did he hit 37HRs, but do you recall a gargantuan 57 hit by Luis "Skin 'n Bones" Gonzalez???!?!?!
