Mueller May Have To Retire

Sep 30, 2006 3:13 PM

Bill Mueller joined the Dodgers in San Francisco and said there has been little improvement in his surgically repaired right knee. "It heals as far as living a normal, daily life," Mueller said. "But as far as physical pounding and activity as a major league baseball player, the knee would not be able to withstand that as of right now." Without another surgery, Mueller's 11-year career in the big leagues could end this winter.

Drew Doesn't Plan To Opt-Out

Sep 27, 2006 12:24 PM

J.D. Drew is enjoying his time in Los Angeles so much that the outfielder hasn't given much thought to opting out of his contract. "I don't plan on (using) it," he said Tuesday. "I've enjoyed my time living in Los Angeles. That's what it was there for - to make sure (wife) Sheigh and I didn't come all the way across the country (from their native Georgia) and get stuck in a situation we didn't like." Drew said the clause has hardly come up in discussions with his agent, Scott Boras, since the original negotiations. "You know what - I don't think so," said Drew, who also has a limited no-trade clause. "Ultimately it's my decision, and we're happy where we're at. We love our house in Pasadena. My wife is happy. She's made a lot of friends in our neighborhood and with the other players' wives. That's really the thing that was nerve-wracking about it (free agency) for me. "At some point, you make those commitments and you stick to them."

Maddux Loses First Decision As Dodger

Sep 5, 2006 1:39 AM

Greg Maddux had his first defeat since being traded to the Los Angeles in a Milwaukee Brewers' 6-3 victory over the Dodgers. Maddux, who was 3-0 since being traded to Los Angeles by the Chicago Cubs on July 31, allowed a run and two hits in his first four innings. But an infield hit glanced off Maddux's glove in the fifth, setting up a three-run inning for Milwaukee. Maddux (12-12) gave up six runs and 10 hits in his first loss since July 19. Maddux is 1-3 against Milwaukee this year. "Usually you're not as good as you think and sometimes you're not as bad as you think," Maddux said. "I could have made some better pitches."
