Earlier this week, right-handed pitcher Kris Benson announced his retirement from baseball. Benson, who was drafted No. 1 overall by the Pirates in 1996, made just three starts for the Diamondbacks last season, but we can't let the news pass by without acknowledging his wife. Anna Benson was one of the few WAGs here in the United States who was good for causing a stir every now and again. She upset the Mets organization for wearing a skimpy outfit to a Christmas party, told Howard Stern she'd sleep with every player on Kris's team if she caught him cheating and then some. So, today, we say goodbye to a WAG who provided us with some great material through the years. Thanks, Anna.
