Turns out Mike Mussina is not the only smarty pants middle-aged white guy right-hander who is retiring this winter. Greg Maddux will call it quits at the Winter Meetings on Monday.

Maddux will be a Cooperstown slam dunk in five years (although given some of the nitwits who have BBWAA voting privileges, it wont be unanimous) as he sails off into the sunset with a record of 355-227 and an ERA of 3.16.

Between them, Moose and Maddux pitched in 1,280 games and threw 8,571 innings. That’s a lot of baseball history departing.
