Craig Biggio of the Houston Astros
The MLB season is around the corner. Opening Sunday night is literally two weeks away as the Chisox open up against Cleveland. Most teams open the next day.
Looking ahead, everyone is talking about Bonds passing Ruth or reaching Aaron. He needs 6 and 47, respectively. He should pass Ruth by Mother's Day in mid-May! I'm not sure that he can hit 47 and tie Aaron.
Of course, I am not sure that Bonds is even going to play in 2006! Frankly, I hope that he does not play and spare us all the controversy of breaking the most cherished of all sports' records.
Beyond Bonds, and the steroids controversy, there are some interesting goals ahead for Craig Biggio of the Houston Astros. (http://houston.astros.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/team/player.jsp?player_id=110987)
Craig Biggio needs 205 hits to reach 3,000. He won't do it but should set himself up for passing the mark in early '07.
Biggio is a first class act. He deserves everything that comes his way. Hopefully, the 3,000 hits will put him in the Hall of Fame.
Biggio also needs 103 runs scored to reach 1800 and move into the top 15 between Ted Williams and Carl Yaztremski. I think that he has a good chance of scoring 103 runs if he can get 500 at bats.
Biggio needs 36 doubles to tie Honus Wager at 640. This is also possible if he stays healthy.
Last year, Biggio and Bagwell, long time teammates, got a chance to play in their first World Series. It did not work out well for Houston but I was happy to see them in the Series.
Bagwell is at 449 home runs and 1,529 RBIs. Unfortunately, Bagwell has too many injuries and may not get enough bats to increase his numbers. I hope that I'm wrong.
Let's cheer for Biggio & Bagwell, two great guys on and off the field!
