Glaus had a .254/.358/.489 batting line and 320 homers over 13 seasons. He could probably still help someone as a bench bat/DH/backup first baseman in the Jason Giambi mode, but you have to figure that once you take a year off to hang with your family like Glaus did, the competitive fires aren’t really burning anymore.
Nice career, Troy. Enjoy your retirement.
