Gonzalez isn't ready to call it a career
Seeking employment: Veteran left fielder, age 40, with a 2001 World Series ring, 2,502 hits and more career doubles than Tony Gwynn, Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, Willie Mays and Babe Ruth. Former Branch Rickey Award winner, Roberto Clemente Award nominee and recipient of multiple Arizona Diamondbacks' Good Guy awards. Full-time position preferred but willing to accept a lesser role if necessary.
When you've earned $63 million over 18 seasons and played in five All-Star Games, it's tough sitting around in January depending on the kindness of strangers. But that's Luis Gonzalez's lot in life this winter. Like Brad Wilkerson, Kenny Lofton, Shawn Green and Trot Nixon, he's just another unemployed left-handed bat in search of a place to play.
Gonzo through the years
I love playing this game, and I'm going to do whatever I have to do until they rip this uniform off my back.
