Every MLB player has a unique career path, but the fun must come to an end eventually. These washed-up former stars of various ages and reputations should walk away before the 2013 season begins.
Chipper Jones retired on his own terms and Jorge Posada knew not to hang around past his usefulness. The following five, unfortunately, can't end their careers as smoothly.
For example, Miguel Tejada has agreed to terms with the Kansas City Royals following a season where he never advanced past Triple-A. Hopefully he reconsiders in spring training and avoids another embarrassing campaign.
