Knock-Out Knuckleball

John Flaherty has retired. He didn't say why, exactly, but maybe he just sucks at catching the knuckleball. Guess you don't know until you try; it's not exactly standard practive among major league catchers. I feel kinda bad for him, actually. It's hard for an old dog to learn new tricks, especially with a couple of young pups nipping at his heels. And I'm sure his competitor's yard-ball yesterday didn't help.

So long, John. I'm sorry you won't be in the clubhouse to watch the whoopin's we lay on your former teammates this year.

What a strange and anti-climactic way to end your career. Hello, spring training! Good-bye, baseball. Weird.
