Gone Too Soon: R.I.P. Nick Adenhart

On Wednesday night I watched the first few innings of the Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics game with my free MLB package preview courtesy of Comcast. 22 year old rookie hurler Nick Adenhart was on the mound for the Halos. I was so impressed with his poise and promise that I flagged him on my fantasy team yesterday morning as a potential pickup. Then I read about his tragic death. Last night's Angels/A's game was postponed as the Angel organization tries to move on from the shock of this news into the mourning stage. God bless you Nick Adenhart; thoughts and prayers go out to your friends and family.

Adenhart isn't the first active MLB player to die. In fact, the last few to do so have all been pitchers. Yankees Cory Lidle (2006) and Cardinals Darryl Kile (2002) and Josh Hancock (2007) have all passed away this decade during their playing days.

Read The Following:
*Razor Gator and Event Chasers were kind enough to send yours truly to Opening Night for free.

*Carl Pavano was a bust as a Yankee, and he's off to a shitoriffic start with Cleveland Indians too.

*Bootlegger Sports has a story about boxer Roy Jones Jr. accompanied by a disturbing image of his uneven six-pack abs.

*No Guts, No Glory has some revealing photos of MLB steroid users.

*We Should Be GM's does a Tale of the Tape for the upcoming Colorado Rockies/Philadelphia Phillies series.

*Awful Announcing supplies readers with the nationally televised MLB announcers for this weekend...probably waiting with bated breath aren't you.

*Phoul Ballz held a Phantasy draft to create all-time Phillies fantasy rosters. Mr. Ballz got Granny Hamner at shortstop. Controversial commenter of this blog, Mr. A-Hole, pointed out- "Granny Hamner sounds like a porn name for some old chick that likes it rough."

*Major League Jerk tells of another Angels tragedy as fans broke out into a fight after Opening Day which ended up with 1 person dying.

*Hugging Harold Reynolds stares in wonderment at the evolution of Gatorade.

*Sharapova's Thigh was effected by the Adenhart car accident a bit differently.

*Trevor Hoffman is no longer closing game in San Diego, but pumped-up Heath Bell is (courtesy of Rumors & Rants).

*Sports Rubbish has video of Giants pitcher Joe Martinez taking a ball off his noggin.

Boyz II Men- It's so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday

Just checked ESPN's MLB page and they have "Gone Too Soon" for their title on the Adenhart story too. Oh well, I didn't try to copy them.

Burton said...

I was travelling yesterday, and did not hear about this until about 2 this morning. It is a shame that one careless decision by someone affects so many people.

GM-Carson said...

I wonder if there's a database for MLB players that have died while still active.

good question, gm carson

The latest news say they are handing down a possible 3 murder charges against the driver, so at the end of the day, it looks like he'll get his. And as a repeat offender, that's exactly what he deserves!

Still, its a shame that things like this have to happen in the first place. Ball player or not, people are torn out of our lives every day by drunk drivers. There's got to be something more worthwhile they can do to prevent it.

Generic Cialis functions by inhibiting the action of an enzyme, known as PDE5. Generic Levitra helps increase the flow of blood to the penis, so it may help men with ED get and keep an erection that lasts long enough to have successful sex.

Generic Viagra is in a class of medications known as PDE-5 inhibitors, which are used to treat cases of male impotence. Generic Propecia is a steroid reductase inhibitor, works by reducing the amount of the hormone dihydrotestosterone in the body. This may block certain types of hair loss in men. Viagra is the best choice medicine for erectile dysfunction as it can be taken regardless of the age of the patient and works unhindered with most medicines.
