He's old...REALLY old and TO is far away from his family.
He's also been on some pretty good teams that haven't been able to win a WS... Mets, Angels and Rangers. Its not a given that we'll make the playoffs or even go on a run. The fact that he's still considering retirement should be evidence that he's concerned with more than just his chances of winning a WS.
All we can think about is how sick it would be to play in the majors, but when you're 42 and made your debut 20 years ago its gotta be hard to convince yourself to start training hard to prepare and then leave your family for 9 months of the year.
