Just crushing, devastating news about the death of Jose Fernandez. He was the most exciting pitcher in the game, with the unreal stuff only a handful of pitchers have ever possessed, and matched that with an infectious enthusiasm, energy and love for the game. He'll be throwing some nasty sliders up there against Babe Ruth and friends in the eternal game.
