After attempting to deal with an ailing right shoulder for three-plus years, the Houston Astros' Jeff Bagwell finally ended up on the disabled list. Now the question is whether it will be a permanent stay. "My career could be over," Bagwell said. "I don't know yet. We'll have to see how things go, but I've certainly thought about it lately." Bagwell, who will turn 37 this month, tore his labrum in 2001 and had shoulder surgery after that season. The shoulder never really rebounded, and he has been playing with persistent pain since.

Playing in the World Series and getting a World Series ringMost embarrassing moment"On an off-day, I played golf with Fred McGriff. I accidentally shanked one and hit McGriff in the shoulder. He didn't say anything about that until the next day. We held kangaroo court, and he went on a tear about me. After that, he went on a hitting tear and I said it was all because of what I did."

On the field: Atlanta hit the ball hard in Game 4, getting five extra-base hits -- two doubles from Javy Lopez, a double apiece from Luis Polonia and Fred McGriff, and a bases-empty homer from Ryan Klesko.In the dugout: Mark Wohlers pitched 2 2/3 innings in the Braves' 11-inning loss in Game 3, and even manager Bobby Cox admitted before Game 4 that he wasn't entirely sure if Wohlers would be able to pitch. But strangely, Wohlers started the ninth with the Braves leading 5-1 and gave up a homer and a double before being replaced by left-hander Pedro Borbon Jr., who got the last three outs to pick up the save.
