Shawn Green Retires

Fifteen year veteran outfielder Shawn Green has announced his retirement. Green, who most recently played with the Mets, was drawing some interest from a few West Coast teams. But since he hit .291 with 10 HR in 130 games, I think he would not accept anything less than a guaranteed deal. Green is a career .282 hitter with 328 HR in 1971 games with the Blue Jays, Dodgers, Diamondbacks, and Mets. Green was always known for being a great player with tremendous respect for the game, and now he will leaves the game to spend more time with his family.
