Lost for words. Unbelievable tragedy. He seemed to bring so much joy to the game when he pitched. Prayers to family and friends.

Desiderata

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.

Just came in from work and saw the news. 24 is far too young no matter your profession, but I will say this. Almost more than any other young athlete, I honestly enjoyed watching him pitch. I'll tune into games because of the matchup. I'll tune into games because of the rivalries. I'll tune into games simply because they are on. I thoroughly enjoy the sport of baseball and I thoroughly enjoyed tuning into games specifically to watch him pitch. His ability was mesmerizing. There are great pitchers coast to coast, and several are arguably better than him, but strictly from the prospective of watching a person take the mound and try to hurl a baseball past another man - there was no current player I took more joy in watching than Jose.

I'm still shocked. I was a huge fan. Jose played the game the right way, and his enthusiasm was infectious. As far as pitchers go, he was a beast! I agree, some of the nastiest stuff I've ever seen. To come back from Tommy John the way he did this season....man, I just can't believe it.

This is a terrible, terrible loss for baseball. My heart goes out to his family, and the Marlins fans & organization.

I was just going to send this in for grading, too.



Rest in Peace, Jose.

Two young men I thought were going to be absolute superstars gone so young, and in such close proximity. I'm still not over Oscar Taveras' tragic death. Now this.

Hug your loved ones close tonight, folks. Nothing is guaranteed. Life is a gift, and it can be over in the blink of an eye.

I rarely post here (hi, everyone)... watch the first five minutes of this clip... grab some tissues to soak up those tears. Such a painful loss. I wish more professional athletes were like Jose, across all sports. Imagine losing your childhood hero today. That's what just happened to too many young fans. I can't wait to hug my grandmother again.

Just tragic. Couldn't help but think of another NL Rookie of the Year who left us way too early.

Jofer's tragic passing reminds me of Lyman Bostock . He also died towards the end of his fourth season ending what was a promising career. RIP Jofer.
