>According to MLBTradeRumors.com, pitcher Mark Mulder has retired.  Of course, this isn’t any surprise because Mulder admittedly hasn’t touched a baseball since February and has been playing in amateur golf tournaments through Arizona, winning 6 of the 9 tournaments that he has entered.

It also isn’t a surprise because Mulder has barely pitched since the end of 2005, a year after the Cardinals traded for him from the A’s for DAN FREAKING HAREN and a couple other players who aren’t that important right now.  Haren is currently one of the most sought after pitchers in the trading market, while Mulder retired with a 22-18 record as a Cardinal.  Guess who got the better end of that deal.
