Jeff Bagwell is headed to the DL, possibly for good. This part of the article is quite depressing:
Bagwell has dealt with the arthritic shoulder since 2001 and says the team never raised the issue until now.

It’ll be sad to see Bagwell retire, as he’s been a model citizen for the game, but it will most definitely be for the best – his health and ability to function in everyday life.
