Eric Byrnes May Retire

Eric Byrnes may retire, reports MLB.com's Steve Gilbert.  Said Byrnes three days after being released by the Mariners:

"I think this is the end.  You never say never, but I think this is it. Parts of 11 seasons, man — I gave everything I had to the game. I can look myself in the mirror and know that I gave it my all. I'm proud of that."

Known for his all-out approach, Byrnes would finish with a .258/.320/.439 line across eleven seasons for the Athletics, Rockies, Orioles, Diamondbacks, and Mariners.  His best years were 2004 and '07, the latter season prompting the Diamondbacks to give him a three-year, $30MM extension that runs through this year.
