Truly one of the greatest pitchers in the game going. Such a tragedy. Baseball lost a phenomenal talent, a tremendous competitor, and by all accounts, got "it".
One of the guys, as a Mets fan, would just give the Mets fits. When I saw he was slated to pitch against the Mets, my heart would sink a little, because his talent was so immense. Was supposed to pitch against the Mets tomorrow. Despite that, had so much respect for him as a competitor.
Defected from Cuba, after 3 unsuccessful attempts. No doubt in my mind he would've won multiple Cy Youngs, on track to be a Hall of Fame pitcher. Sad day for the family, for the Marlins organization and their fans, and for all of baseball.
