Springer facing an uncertain future

Springer facing an uncertain future: "Russ Springer will sit down with his family after the season to determine whether he will pitch again in 2009.

Springer, who is 2-1 with a 2.37 ERA in 68 games with the St. Louis Cardinals, is unsigned for next season. He still enjoys the game and feels well enough to continue, but his family no longer lives in St. Louis, residing instead in their off-season home in Alexandria, La."

... Any long term caretaker of children or parent can empathise with Springer regarding the decision (with his family) of whether or not to play next season.
