Exclamation Salomon Torres retires

MILWAUKEE -- Add "closer" to the Brewers' list of offseason needs.
Salomon Torres, who emerged in May as a steady replacement for the unsteady Eric Gagne and went on to lead the team in saves, appearances and relief innings, informed the Brewers on Tuesday that he intended to retire.

The story was first reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt. The Brewers subsequently made a formal announcement.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved who helped make this season a memorable one for me and my family, everyone from the fans to [Brewers owner] Mark Attanasio to [general manager] Doug Melvin, the Brewers staff and front office," Torres said in a statement. "Milwaukee is a wonderful city with great fans and people. I will always cherish the opportunity I had to play here. While I still have great passion and energy for the game of baseball, I feel that the time has come to redirect that passion and energy to my family and God."

Sounds like he just wanted to go out on a good note with a career year, I don't blame him.

It was a very good year for him to go out on. To be quite honest I like it because half way through the season he probably would have been gone anyways.

Better to go out on a good year than a mediocre one. So who can we get as a replacement?
