"That’s always a tough decision for guys," Ventura said, per CSN Chicago. "When they get where he’s at and Paul (Konerko) and all those guys that are of age, you get close and you might see the end. You don’t know. It’s a tough decision. This is something he’s done most of his adult life. It’s important. It’s still fun. You just never know. I’ve also heard guys talk that way and end up playing five more years."
