This will definitely interest a few parties, sorry if it's already been posted:

The great thing in hitting is, not to be half-hearted about it; but when you make up your mind to hit, to do it as if the whole match depended upon that particular stroke.

I understand the reasoning but I think the timing is a bit off. Kinda of "we cant win so what's the point". I would have hoped he would have used the final games to try and go out on a high especially with such an amazing career behind him. He'll leave a big hole

Seems like a good time to give someone else a run considering the series is already gone. No point hanging on for two games to have a send off in my opinion.
