Patterson retires

Postby MikeeDee » Wed Jan 07, 2009 2:38 pm

From Rotoworld:

Free agent John Patterson said Wednesday that he is retiring from baseball because of persistent pain in right forearm.

Patterson is just 30, but he's spent the last three years battling soreness and two surgeries haven't done the trick. "I started throwing about a month ago and it hasn't been going well," Patterson said. "I have my good days and I have my bad days. So I decided to not play any more. I'm going to retire." If the pain goes away, he could always come back. If not, he finishes what was a promising career 18-25 with a 4.32 ERA. In 2005, his one full season as a major league starter, he had a 3.13 ERA and 185 strikeouts in 198 1/3 innings for the Nats.


I guess the good news is that I can no longer get burned by his unfulfilled promise. :-°
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

:-? must have been an awful team. I know his ratios were decent that season but don't think he even won 10 games.

And we all know how wins is the determining factor of how well a pitcher is.

I thought this was going to be about Corey Patterson as well. :-D
