Re(2): Elicegui retiring...

During the time I watched Jai Alai with some regularity, he was always my favorite. I could go on at length but, it's been awhile since I watched the game and the people on this board now are different than those days and, probably, no one would care. Gary D has had some personal contact with him and can definitely go on at length.

When he left Miami, his arm was not the incredible instrument it had been and I can't imagine it has shown improvement as, when you get older, things physical don't generally improve.

Putting him in Dania I would think, would probably be an embarrassment. Believe me, if he retired on his own, even he knows that.

I still stand by my statement that, at the time he played Miami, he threw harder than any other player BY FAR.
