His 3,000th hit was probably the icing on the cake for his career. It's probably the right time for him to step away and have his number retired next season. Good luck, Craig. Thanks for signing the letter I wrote that you responded to and see ya in Cooperstown!

I've always liked Biggio and the way he plays. I heard him on the radio earlier this summer and he talked about "playing the game the right way" and "having respect for the game."

I also liked the gallon of pine tar on his batting helmet. For lack of a better term, Biggio was a very talented "grinder" who played three positions (C, CF, 2B) well.

He then hits a grand slam on the nite he announces his retirement. The place must have went nuts!!!!!

First ballot Hall of Famer in my book.

He only needs 3 more HBP to become the all-time career leader. Where are the scrolls on ESPN for this? Three more, and his career will be complete.

I thought he broke the record held by Don Baylor already?

Baylor never had the record. Maybe a "modern day" record or something.
