    Tino Martinez retires, joins ESPN

    http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

    BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- His playing career apparently over, Tino Martinez is joining ESPN as an analyst on "Baseball Tonight."

    Martinez spent last season with the New York Yankees, then became a free agent. He said in November that he had been contacted by several teams, but none that he was interested in playing for.

    The two-time All-Star first baseman hit 339 homers in 16 major league seasons with Seattle, the Yankees, St. Louis and Tampa Bay, winning World Series titles with the Yankees in 1996 and from 1998-2000.

    ESPN also said Tuesday that former major leaguer Orestes Destrade will be a "Baseball Tonight" analyst and will also serve in that role during game broadcasts of the World Baseball Classic next month.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    ...the gentleman who owns the proud distinction of being the first ever Marlin.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
