Seven-time All-Star Alfonso Soriano says he is retiring from the major leagues after a season in which he was released by the New York Yankees in July.

You may not recognize the new team, but you’ll probably recognize the result: just short of 90 wins, just short of the playoffs, way short of expectations.
