Biggio Wins The 2007 Roberto Clemente Award

Craig Biggio received national recognition tonight before the World Series for his work with the Sunshine Kids Foundation.

This is really good news, as it will bring his name into the consciousness of all the mainstream East Coast reporters who, amidst all the Red Sox Worship, are having to actually acknowledge that there are real actual baseball players west of the Hudson River.

This way, when he’s up for the Hall Of Fame in 5 years, all those guys just might could dimly remember that they heard his name somewhere…

    I hope all Astros fans can appreciate the depth of recognition that Biggio brings. Despite his last few years of comparatively less than all-star standards on the field, Craig Biggio has left a genuine Hall of Fame stamp on the franchise.
    Perhaps because of the more vivid accomplishments of the Bagell icon, Biggio flew slightly under the radar during the middle and late ’90s, but he has solidly and faithfully hung in there, and except for some drunken comments from David Wells, has stayed completely out of the steroid discussions.
