Very sad. On another note, in a separate incident former MLB prospect Andy Marte was also killed in a car crash in the DR.

Sad day for MLB and their families/friends.

I think you pointed out the issue. The more people who are likely to know the victim, the more coverage.

On Ventura, still waiting on the toxicology report. I hope with all my heart that he wasn't drunk and totally missed the lesson of Taveras. But I know those odds are slim. :(
