I was kind of stunned and saddened to hear of the abrupt retirement of former Mariner Ian Snell. Snell was released by the Mariners after last season, and was a non roster invitee with the Cardinals this spring. The 29 year old was optioned to the minors by the Cards yesterday, and Ian just quit.
Sports Illustrated last year. I hope that he can keep his life together and be able to continue at peace. Good luck to you Ian.
