In his career, Eyre pitched for San Francisco, Toronto and both Chicago teams in addition to his time with the Phillies and finishes his career with a 28-30 mark and a 4.23 ERA.
The Phillies had offered Eyre, who became a free agent at the end of the season, a minor league contract which he turned down. Eyre had said during the 2009 season that he would retire at the end of the season, but had second thoughts later in the year. As it turns out, Eyre admitted that even if the Phillies had offered him a major league deal, he would have still likely retired.
For now, Eyre's retirement plans call for a long family trip in his RV through the western part of the United States.
