Rickey Henderson (48 now) would like one more crack at it:
... I see Roger can come back and play. I can come back and play. They say I've done too much. What'd he accomplish? ... The players they put on the field nowadays, they couldn't make it in my day. They'd get sent back to Triple-A."
... Julio's [Franco] out there. I know I can play with Julio. You need to name a whole lot of players before you get to Julio. ... I just want a spring training invite. Most clubs said if I got an invite, I'd probably make their club, but (they) don't have a spot.
... I'm through, really. I'm probably through with it now. It's just one of those things. I thank the good Lord I played as long as I played and came out of it healthy. I took a lot of pounding.""
