I really liked Todd but it was time for him to retire. I hope he enjoys his retirement and continues to write for the Sporting News.

I'm gonna miss you Gas Can, Bombs Away Jonesey.
Now I've got these losers that can't throw strikes.
At least you woke up the fans in the outfield.

Thanks for the kind words Jim. At least now everybody knows why I was the closer for so long. Good luck next year. It's hard to win with poor pitching and poor defense.
