The ESPN folks mentioned during last night's broadcast that Tim Salmon had decided to have surgery on his left shoulder and left knee. Today's Times reports that Salmon will likely miss 2005, his last year under contract to the Angels. More to come on this, but for right now, I just want to say thanks to a guy who, for the last eleven years, has defined the Angels more than any other player. He was there for the bad times, and was an integral part of the 2002 championship run. If this is, in fact, the end of Salmon's career, the game is losing one hell of a classy ballplayer.
