Former Pawtucket Red Sox pitcher Scott Cassidy has retired. I can remember Jack Cressand but not Cassidy. D'oh.
Matt Mantei has also retired. Again. He's excited about going home for good:
"I'm cool with it, though. I'm going home to be a dad again. My son doesn't know I'm coming home yet, so he'll be pleased. Plus he's only 5, can't read yet, so he won't read what I'm saying now. It's going to be a surprise. That will be fun."
He's only five. It's going to be a surprise because he's not reading the sports page over coffee and eggs in the morning.
He can't read yet!
