The Washington Nationals just released John Patterson, at one time a promising pitcher who was the ace of their staff. Patterson is just 30.

Remember that, when you're moaning about athletes' salaries, that for every one who plays till he/she's 40 and makes a mint, there are hundreds of others who never make it to the top grade and a big contract, or end up injured and washed up at a time that many of us are just BEGINNING our (non-athletic) careers.

I hope Patterson's arm regains its strength and he can pitch in the majors again. But you can't bank on it...
