Simon: Mets’ Michael Cuddyer is retiring

Asked to comment on the announcement, Lassus said he was “impressed.” Russlan called the move “inspiring.”

Mchael Cuddyer is retiring from baseball. The decision surely comes as a surprise to Mets fans, as Cuddyer had one year remaining on the two-year, $21 million contract he signed last offseason. Cuddyer was set to make $12.5 million in 2016, and it’s unclear if there are any financial terms—a buyout, for example—for his retirement.

About an hour ago, the Mets’ transactions page listed Cuddyer’s retirement, but moments later it had vanished. It wasn’t clear if the original transaction was a mistake or an intern prank, but it did seem as if nothing would come of it. Some speculated that Cuddyer was indeed retiring but that the transaction page was inadvertently updated before an announcement could be made.

Mark Buehrle to throw two innings on Sunday, then retire

Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports that Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle will pitch two innings on Sunday, then retire. He is not expected to be included on the Blue Jays’ post-season roster.

Two more innings would bring Buehrle to 200 innings for a 15th consecutive season. The 36-year-old has vastly outpaced the competition in this category, as his closest competitor since 2001 is James Shields, with nine 200-inning seasons.

Ode to Affeldt

Everything about that game felt flat, lifeless, colorless, like the whole scene had degenerated into black and white. I was sitting in the scout section with the Royals’ general manager at the time, Allard Baird, and we were talking about family and life and anything that came to mind to distract us from the dullness of the game itself.

And then Jeremy Affeldt entered.
