Jack McKeon in happier times
To the surprise of just about no one, Jack McKeon announced his retirement this afternoon. Let the Guillen/Valentine/reincarnated spirit of Casey Stengel rumors begin!

Too bad McKeon's second term as manager did not have nearly as many highlights as his first, but he always kept things interesting and rarely bit his tongue. There are only two managers in our pantheon, and Trader Jack is one of them (Earl Weaver is the other, as if you had to even ask). We'll miss him.
