Arthur Rhodes might not be ready to retire

After 20 years in the big leagues, lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes finally got his World Series ring with the Cardinals in 2011.

But that apparently doesn't mean the 42 year old is ready to ride off into the sunset.

According to a CBS report, the White Sox may be interested in bringing Rhodes in to camp to give him a shot at winning a job in their bullpen. But it's far from a certainty that they'll come to an agreement. The Pale Hose are also looking at former Rangers reliever Mike Gonzalez who a couple of days ago turned down a minor league offer to return to Texas.

Rhodes has been quiet this off-season about whether he is even interested in pitching again. Last fall he said his last goal was to get a championship ring. So this is the perfect opportunity to check the last thing off his to-do list and go out on top.

Also a former Ranger -- not to mention an Oriole, Mariner, Red, Athletic, Phillie, Indian and Marlin -- Rhodes was 3-4 with a 4.64 ERA between Texas and the Cardinals last season. For his career, he is 87-70 with a 4.08 ERA.
