Colt Griffin retires

Colt Griffin has announced he is retiring.

As many of you probably remember, he was the Royals' first round draft choice in 2001 -- the Mark Teixeira draft -- and there was clamoring from a certain segment, demanding that the Rangers draft Griffin, because he was a Texas high schooler who could throw 100 mph, and the Rangers needed pitching, not another bat.
