It's being announced that Alfonso Soriano will retire.

According to the Associated Press:

"...he is retiring from the major leagues after a season in which he was released by the New York Yankees in July.

'I've lost the love and passion to play the game,' Soriano said in a radio interview Tuesday in his native Dominican Republic. 'Right now, my family is the most important thing... Although I consider myself in great shape, my mind is not focused on baseball.'" 

Lord knows when your hearts no longer in it... it's hard to come back.

I will miss Soriano.  I never liked the fact that he was traded years ago, but over all, the guy had a pretty good baseball career compiling 412 home runs, most of those came with the Cubs. Really great.  I loved Alfonso's sweet swing.

I'll never forget Sori's homer to put the Yankees in the lead in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series.  It was dramatic.  Too bad we didn't capitalize on it.

Good Luck Sori... you will be missed!
