Is Ricky Henderson Coming Back?

What the hell is this I hear about the man himself, Ricky Henderson, attempting to make a comeback to the majors? At 48 years old,most clubs say they "just dont have a spot open" to add him to a roster. I think thats plain bull. And for good reason- Henderson is OBVIOUSLY an established ball player, being the career leader in runs scored (2,295), stolen bases (1,406) and is only second behind Barry Bonds in walks with 2,190. To add to the list, Henderson has 3,055 career hits, 297 home runs, won the 1990 AL MVP award and made 10 All-Star games. He won an AL Gold Glove in 1981 as an outfielder with the A's.
Can you say nasty? I know it was a while ago, the game has changed since then, but I think Henderson can hang with Julio Franco.

I'd love to see Ricky come back, if Julio can do it, and Smoltz is still kicking it, Clemens is making a comeback, why not Ricky?

Selfish me, I'd love to see my graded Ricky rookie cards go up in value !!!
