Jan 7, 2010, 5:29 PM | Updated: Apr 4, 2011, 7:55 pm

Today it was reported that Tony LaRussa would like to put Mark McGwire on his active roster if the Cardinals are still in contention on August 31st next year.

Picture this: “Tony Danza stars at Dynamite Dino Fielder’ – the washed up MLB superstar – who must make a critical decision regarding his future…and his dream. Which passion will he pursue? FIELDER’S CHOICE.”

Chris Cashman introduced us to what the trailer might sound like: Fielder’s Choice.


If you could see one major superstar – in any sport – come out of retirement and play again, who would it be? Leave your thoughts below – we’ll be back to this again tomorrow!
