Brady Clark unretired? Plays in AAA (NYM affiliate) game 5/3/08


TooLiveBrew

... as opposed to heading to AAA. Fight the power, Brady! Stole this from Rotoworld:

 

The New York Daily News reports that Brady Clark is expected to retire rather than report to Triple-A.

Clark was designated for assignment by the Mets last week and cleared waivers.

WhileI'm glad we upgraded from him I always respected him. Good luck at what ever you do. If he so choses I'd bet he would be good at coaching/managing down the road. Guys who have to scrap and fight for every inch always seem to do better than the guys with a boatload of talent when it comes to teaching others.

Ahhh, Bray-dee Clark (as Robb Edwards pronounced it at the park).

 

We'll always have your attempted steal of home in Shea a few weeks ago that left me shaking my head that you would try it, yet grateful that you tried it as a Met and were cut down at the plate by the Brewers.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

I always liked Brady. A good free pickup by Doug. Brady has no reason to hang his head. A hard nose scrappy guy who made it all the way to Major League Starter one season, and had a handful of decent seasons as a spare outfielder. Who wouldn't trade in their fiance for a chance to do the same? Good for you, Brady. You worked your way up, took your talented as far as it could take you, and knew when it was time to hang it up. Hope you invested well; you'll have some great stories for the grandkids sometime down the line.

Always liked Brady. Played hard and always left everything out on the field. Two things I will always remember Brady for was his very good 2005 year when he hit .306 13 HR's 53 RBI and scored 94 runs and the amazing catch he made in CF back in 2003 in Colorado. Good luck Brady wish ya well!

"YOU ARE NOT FAST!"

-Me, yelling at Brady Clark on TV

 

"STOP TRYING TO STEAL YOU ARE NOT FAST"

-Me, yelling at Brady Clark at Miller Park

 

"WHY ARE YOU TELLING BRADY CLARK TO STEAL?"

-Me, to Ned Yost

 

Brady Clark was the master of bloop singles, plate crowding, caught stealings, and general better than Scott Podsednikness. In fact, I propose the term "bloop single" be re-named "Brady Clark hit".

I like Brady, always had a soft spot for him. I tend to latch on to the players who aren't the must talented guys but still find their own edge and get the job done.

 

Good luck Brady.

I respect Brady and wish him the best of luck. He'll be back in 2010. He needs to spend 2009 as a coach before we'll resign him.

According to baseball-reference.com, Clark has earned $9,171,500 between 2002 and 2007. He never has to work another day in his life.

 

Brady Clark was one of the few gritty battlers that deserved the title. He always got on base at a decent clip and could be counted on for a good at bat. And let's not forget his catch in Colorado during the 2003 season. Perhaps the most spectacular in I've seen anyone in a Brewers uniform make.
