According to Tom H., Salomon Torres retired. Again.
He promises that this is it - he's done (remember he retired upon being traded to Milwaukee, and he also retired about 10 years ago).
This saves the Brewers almost $4 million, meaning that Brad can add this to the conspiracy theory. Clearly Attanasio told Torres to retire in a cost-cutting move. Torres was not really an option for closer again, but it would have been nice to have him in the bullpen because he was useful. Perhaps one of the 2 other biggest moves this offseason (other than hiring Willie Randolph) will be finding a reliable closer.
