I guess if you’re going to go out – go out on top, which is apparently what former San Francisco Giant Ryan Theriot plans to do – at least, according to Hank Schulman who is reporting that the former reserve infielder is thinking of becoming an agent:

"I’m hearing Ryan Theriot, who is still unsigned, is thinking of becoming an agent. #sfgiants."

The Riot, who spent a lone season by the Bay, of course scored the winning run of the 2012 World Series and leaves the game (assuming he does) with a fancy new piece of jewelery on his finger. There are worse ways to call it a career.

San Francisco had hoped to bring Ryan back, but Theriot wanted more money than the Giants were willing to part with and a starting job, something the Giants also were unable to give. And judging by the response the former infielder received in the free agent market, they weren’t the only ones. So – without a starting gig nor enough dollars to make it rain, Ryan is thinking of hanging them up – weird, given his semi-young age in baseball years (he’s only 33) but if the situation isn’t right, the situation isn’t right.

Thanks for that shallow single to right center and for that run, Riot. Oh, and the yell. It kicks ass, every single time.
