World Series MVP Steve Pearce officially retires, says 2018 Red Sox did nothing wrong

It’s now official.

After telling WEEI.com he was “unofficially retired” in December, Steve Pearce took the next step when appearing with Mike Mutnanksy on WEEI’s replay of Game 1 of the 2018 World Series.

“You know what? It has been a good run. I have 10 years in there. Right now I am officially retired,” said Pearce, who turned 37 years old Monday.

It marks the end of a major league career that spanned over 13 seasons with eight different teams. His shining moment, of course, was winning the 2018 World Series MVP after belting three home runs against the Dodgers. The 10th-round pick in the 2004 Draft finishes his career having played in 766 games, compiling a .254 batting average and .772 OPS with 91 home runs.

Somehow, the former is making me have doubts about the latter…..
