Not Tigers related. But, Jose was one of the top young SP's in all of baseball, died this morning in a boating accident.

heartbreaking to say the least. marlins pushed his start back a day, probably would not have been on the boat if he was going to pitch but human error had to be a factor in that accident

They hit a jetty out near Miami bay. Such a shame. He was a phenomenal young pitcher and by all accounts, a great person off the field. He had an amazing talent and was one of those pursuing the American Dream after 3 failed attempts at defecting. In fact, he was jailed at 15 for trying to defect. He was also looking at one monster contract coming up too.

The game lost a great young player, as they did with Oscar Taveras.

That was just really emotional and interesting to watch. It was hard seeing his mother in complete denial about the reports of him driving and having cocaine/alcohol. I also hope she can make it through the ceremony at the ASG, because it clearly hurts her to even think about baseball anymore. Anyway, if anyone else wants to discuss I thought this might be interesting.
