Major league left-hander Joe Kennedy dies
I saw that this morning, and felt shocked and saddened. He was so young.
Horrible. First Corey Lidle, now Kennedy.
Geez, thoughts and prayers to his wife and child.
Very tragic you just never know when you are going to get called.
It is being reported that his wife is pregnant, too. The pain and sense of loss that his loved ones must be suffering...
MLB.com has tribute page for Joe Kennedy, here is the link: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/news/tributes/obit_joe_kennedy.jsp
Nice article from the Chron:
The A's calendar, which was given away last season (players and their dogs), features JK as the featured player for November.
Sad and creepy at the same time.
I'm in Taiwan and the Chinese language ESPN reported the story, they showed Bonds hitting a bomb off him. The next story was about the Santana trade rumors, showed him striking out Vlad.
Sweet. Makes me regret the nasty things I said about his pitching.
All part of being a fan, you're pissed. You'd think after the Lidle accident, some of us would reel it in, I know I didn't, but as fans, we're passionate and in the heat of the moment definitely say things we regret later, regardless of what happens to the player.
Another touching story about Kennedy:
Susan Slusser is reporting that heart disease killed Joe Kennedy. The pending toxicology reports were not needed in determining his cause of death because he had "myxoid valvular disease":
Sounds as if he had been thoroughly examined, too. Scary.
