I disagree. It's not scientific or anything, but when an older player catches absolute fire the way PK did to start last year, they seem to use up whatever juice they had left. Same way Dye went out. Hotter than ever to completely done seemingly overnight.
But either way, does it really matter? Paul was awesome and he helped bring us a World Series title. He's certainly too old to be part of the next WS title, so done or not, I hope he goes out satisfied with his accomplishments while still leaving the Sox in a position to move forward.
