I couldn't disagree with you more. It is not a player's job to remove themselves from a game. In fact I would say if he were thinking like that he should have hung them up way earlier. That being said Scott has lost a step. He was a guy that I rooted hard for, as he always played the game the right way. I don't think the reds bring him back next year. But I appreciate the time that he was here and don't believe the franchise would be as well off as they are now without him.
