Bret Boone retires after losing the "edge"

When they started really testing for the "edge" it really hit some people hard. Losing that "edge" was intense. Bret Boone had the "edge" just a few short years ago, and he was awesome then. Unfortunately, as the edge goes away, so too does Bret Boone.

"Physically, I think I can still do it. It wasn't as easy as even three or four years ago, but I had lost the edge. I couldn't look in the mirror and think that I would get that edge back," Boone said.

Darn that "edge". I had the "edge" once. But when my right testicle shriveled up to almost nothing an I started feeling really angry at my mailbox for no reason I decided that maybe being on the "edge" wasn't so much good for me. Cest la vie.
