I’d like to write about this at greater length, but for now I’ll just note that Mark DeRosa has retired. I always liked him, from the time he came up.

He had a 16-year career, which is pretty astonishing considering the way he left Atlanta, after utterly failing to hold down the starting job at third base that the Braves gave him in 2004. He was an okay hitter and an okay fielder who played for eight different teams and played every position on the diamond but pitcher, catcher, and center field.

Anyone have any DeRo memories?
