Miguel Cabrera, you’ve been a good boy! Come with me out back...

For those who don't know, Old Yeller was a good dog.  They say the best daggum dog in the west.  He really saved the day at times.  Sadly, one day Old Yeller contracted rabies and they had to take him

Rouged odor.  He may only be 25, but that’s 175 in dog years (same as his batting average.)

Was hoping this thread was about old players that need to retire from the league and be euthanized. Was going to add Pujols to the list.

 

It is and he'd count. 

 

Wei Chen.  This dude is getting TWENTY million this year,  too.

WOW now that's some funny sht right there. I saw that somebody dropped him in my NL only league 4 days ago and I didn't even bother putting in a claim. The guy is a Well Done burnt T-Bone steak.

This thread has opened my eyes to guys who I had no idea were really as bad as they have been

 

Nobody has said Stephen Piscotty.  I like you dude, but it’s time to join Buster Posey in waiverville.

It crossed my mind to cut him in a deep league.

If there is no injury or playing time change, most players in this thread, if dropped, are solid pickups, You can make a living picking up discarded old players underperforming. Age related deterioration of skills is real but rarely is it a cliff. Most of the time poor performance is better explained as the same in season wOBA ups and downs that affects all players. The off season is a good time to assess the degree of age related change, but in season I think you can over emphasize age as an explanation slumping production.
