Ken Takahashi set to retire at the end of the season

It appears Ken Takahashi (HIR) has decided to retire at the end of the season because he hasn't been able to get back into proper pitching frameset (both mentally and physically).  It also seems the Carp were no longer considering him as a piece of their puzzle for the 2011 season.
