Juicer Jeff Hangs ’em Up – HOFer?

Kent Retires Baseball I have no hard evidence Jeff Kent is/was a juicer, just my observation, quick to scuffle, square head, solid muscle, and a little too eager to deny rumors. His numbers are as rock solid as his abs. From 1997-2005 he drove in more than 90 runs per season, unprecedented, 128 in 1998 was his career best, finished his career with 1,518 ribbies, this while playing traditionally not an offensive position, secondbase. In 2002 Jeff hit more homers than during any other year of his career, 37. Kent was never flashy with the leather, but made the routine plays. He’d never win a congeniality award. He was the best offensive secondbaseman of his era, ending his career with 351 home runs while playing secondbase, 74 more than Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg. Kent hit a total of 377 home runs, 560 doubles, scored 1,320 runs, while batting .290 over his 17 year career. Jeff Kent was a five time All Star, four times he won Silver Sluggers, and was the National League MVP in 2000.
