The Chronicle's Jose De Jesus Ortiz reports that Jeff Bagwell's arthritic right shoulder may force him to retire. Bagwell, who will undergo surgery
today, says that he is still hoping to play for "one more year".
If it had been up to Robert Bagwell, his eldest boy would have headed to the disabled list a year ago and stopped taking cortisone shots and
painkillers long before that. Robert Bagwell knows his son, though. He knew Astros icon Jeff Bagwell, a potential Hall of Famer, would take a bum
right shoulder as far as he could before finally saying "enough" last month.
