They rattled off his career numbers on ESPN this a.m. He's got quite an impressive resume.
Outstanding! Biggio is one of my all-time favorite non-Reds. He got 5 hits last night too, pretty impressive.
Hall of Famer.
Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

yes, this really is how we make our living.
Biggio has always been a great team player, too, shuffling between catcher, CF, 2B. In many ways, a modern day version of Pete Rose.
A HoF'er, for sure. Good for Craig Biggio; I've always admired him.
Biggio is another guy who I've always liked. If you look at how much he has made each year, it becomes obvious from the pay cuts he took several times he fancies himself a lifetime Astro - and simply stayed around for the love of the game and the city. Always a fun player to watch.
Kinda too bad he got thrown out trying to stretch #3000 into a double, though.
For those who didn't see it, Biggio was thrown out at 2nd trying to extend the single to a double. Sort of sad that he hung on past when he was worth starting to get the milestone. He was a HoF before 3000 and didn't need to pad his resume'.
In any case, here are his top 10 comps from Baseball-Reference:
1. Robin Yount (850) *
2. Roberto Alomar (824)
3. Joe Morgan (823) *
4. Paul Molitor (795) *
5. Lou Whitaker (783)
6. Ryne Sandberg (774) *
7. Cal Ripken (764) *
8. Brooks Robinson (759) *
9. Charlie Gehringer (757) *
10. Vada Pinson (752)
Not a bad list at all. Put all the hard to measure things like avoiding double plays and defensive flexibility and it's a slam dunk.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
