Danny Bautista retires

Surprised to read that Danny Bautista has decided to quit the game, walking away from the $1.9m contract he signed with Tampa Bay in the off-season. He cited repeated injury as the cause, and is only 32. "Hmmm..." is really all I want to say on the subject openly, and I wish Danny all the best. He'll always be remembered for hitting .583 for Arizona in the 2001 World Series, the fourth-highest average of all time in the fall classic.
