Melvin Mora Has Not Actually Retired, You Guys

I was reading something the other day that reminded me about old graveyards. Used to be that graves would have bells by them, with attached strings that descended into the caskets below. That way, if one were to have been mistakenly buried alive, he could simply tug on the string, and voila! No more dead!

This reminded me of that. Jon Morosi:

The agent for 13-year major-league veteran Melvin Mora said Wednesday that his client has not retired and wants to play in 2012.

Eric Goldschmidt told FOXSports.com that Mora, who turns 40 next month, is pursuing a contract that would include an invitation to major-league spring training.

That's relevant because, at the end of December, there was this:

After 13 seasons in the major leagues, Melvin Mora has decided to call it a career, according to Rafael Rojas of Meridiano Deportes.

Melvin Mora: officially not retired yet. Now, he's nearly 40, and last year he batted .228 with zero home runs. Melvin Mora might decide to retire soon. But for now, that bell is ringing away. We'll see if someone decides to dig Mora up. This is horrible.
