    From KFFL:
    Dodgers | Mueller's career could be over
    Fri, 21 Jul 2006 05:11:34 -0700

    Ken Gurnick, of LosAngeles.Dodgers.MLB.com, reports Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Bill Mueller (knee) has had all known procedures to repair his right knee ruled out. Mueller will continue to rehab his knee in hopes of a miracle recovery in 2007 or a yet-to-be-discovered solution but it appears as if his career could be over.


    This is to bad, the guy was a complete Pro and a very steady guy when he was here. It does go to show that Theo knew what he was doing when he didn't re-sign him.

    billy ball game was the best. a total class act and a excellent teammate who always deflected credit to his teammates first.he was a huge reason why the redsox finnally won in 04.i remeber in 03 in texas when he hit two grand slams one from each side of the plate and hit another hr and went four for four with 11 rbi .he went on to win the batting crown that year.i had hoped he would come back to fenway with the dodgers and get the standing ovation he deserved.

    It's amazing what he accomplished when he was with us...because he played in much pain then. A class act...good guy....nice to see he made enough money to live comfortably the rest of his life.

    I remember interviews where all his teamates referred to him as "the pro" ---says a lot! He always seemed to come through when we needed him to the most! Nice to see Theo was right on---however you will be missed billy:cool:

    I bet he would make a great manager someday! In the Joe Torre mold.
