Looks like Magglio Ordonez is retiring

I don’t think this counts as an official announcement yet, but here’s Magglio Ordonez on Twitter this afternoon:

 

Literally, that’s “close to retirement,” but do you really tweet that if you’re not gonna do it?

Earlier this spring we learned that Ordonez wouldn’t accept a minor league deal and would only play for a guaranteed roster spot and paycheck.  That wasn’t forthcoming, so this looks like the end of the road.
