Jeff Karstens announces his retirement

#HanginEmUp Just would like to give a huge thank you to all my family, friends, teammates, and coaches for all the support you’ve giving me on and off the field over the years. I will forever cherish all of the special moments and memories. #ThankYou

Few men have done more with less of a fastball.

Enjoy your retirement, Jeff.

Arthur Rhodes officially retires

MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon reports that reliever Arthur Rhodes has officially retired from baseball.

Rhodes hasn’t pitched since 2011, but I think he still deserves a proper sendoff. 20 years, 900 games, 1,152 strikeouts, one All-Star berth, and two of the biggest earrings you ever saw.
