retirement at Dodgers Stadium today. I have read some articles and have been listening to mixed emotions from fans in the Bay Area. The big debate going on right now is if Kent should make the Hall of Fame. Jeff Kent is a guy that has always bugged me. I’m a huge Barry Bonds fan and I’m sure everyone remembers hearing about Bonds and Kent’s scuffle in the dugout in San Diego. Then he got into it with Milton Bradley.
Everyone knows that Kent is a gamer! This guy is all business when he’s on the field. He never played the game to have best friends in the club house. Kent and Bonds were a great 3-4 punch in the middle of the lineup. These guys would never have dinner or hangout in the locker room.
went to the World Series.
