Ray Durham Could Retire After Season

Giants second baseman Ray Durham is unsure whether he wants to play in 2009, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.  The resurgent Durham is hitting .302/.385/.420 in 192 plate appearances this year.  Maybe he’ll choose to go out on a high note.

Durham makes $7.5MM plus incentives this year, plus incentives and a no-trade clause.  He should have decent trade value; only Mark DeRosa and Chase Utley have a higher OBP among second basemen.  Maybe the Cardinals would be interested.
