Holy Toledo!
The only news lately for former Astros first baseman Jeff Bagwell is that he didn't get selected for the Hall of Fame for the third year in a row. There has been a lot of talk that the reason he wasn't selected was due to rumors of PED use mainly due to his associations with Ken Caminiti and others.

We don't know if this is the result of his losing out on the HOF (we doubt it), but he has put his home in Timberwilde up for sale. If you are looking for a cozy little 16,000-square-foot home (though the Harris County Appraisal District lists it at over 18,000 square feet) on a private 2.4-acre estate, you can grab this bad boy for $15 million, though I bet there is some wiggle room there given that the appraisal district has it pegged at just over $9 million. But, then again, the real estate market in Houston is pretty damn strong.

With it you get a wine cellar, a saltwater pool and spa, a fitness center, a putting green and a loggia. "A loggia?" you ask. Yes, a loggia.

The HAR description:

Magnificent estate privately situated, over 2.46 acres of incredible grounds on exclusive Timberwilde Lane. Extensively renovated & rebuilt 2009 by Steve Goodchild w/impeccable design & interiors by Marjorie Slovack. Grand gallery. Fabulous formals. Wine vault. Gourmet kitchen open to den. Billiard room/media room. Luxurious master suite. 4 guest suites. Loggia w/summer kitchen & fireplace. Saltwater pool/spa. 2 bedroom guest house. Separate fitness center/spa. Gated drive court + 6 car garage.

Get a closer look for yourself, you know, in case you're in the market.

Isn't Bagwell going through a divorce?

It strikes me that this home has no residue of anything personal about it. It's as though a ghost and his interior designer inhabited the place in empty, happy harmony. Is it normally so characterless amongst professional athletes, or amongst the class that has no personal history but plenty of money?

Must be because he lost the Bush tax break for multi-millionaires....life is hard.

@Hanabi-chan  The flaccid decoration would suggest that's the case young Hanabi. Are you the sushi chef at Ginza where Jeff is often seen?

@StClaire @Hanabi-chan  Alas, I am not. Just an  anime fan. For that I blame my daughter, she is the one that got me into anime.

Isn't Bagwell also dating Rachel Brown, ie that creepy hand doctor's ex?

(Shhh, he can't comment about that. And his musculature is the result of much lifting and Romney amounts of milk)
