David Crouthers hangs them up

The pitcher the Cubs received in the Sammy Sosa deal David Crouthers has decided to retire. To me this is actually good news. Why you ask? I was always down on Crouthers and now the Cubs will get compensation in a different player from the Orioles. Now I am sure the guy they get won't be much more than a low tier prospect, but maybe the Cubs can try and get a younger pitcher that they can work with who has a little more potential than Crouthers ever had.

Added Note:
I have been out of town and did not read this until just now from InsideTheIvy. Steve Holley wrote an article with the story of David retiring at the end.
