    Holy shit. One of the best pitchers in the game and only 24.

    Wow! Not the same star caliber as Fernandez but back in the early 90s a few Indians pitchers were killed in a boating accident also

    By all accounts he was a real salt of the earth kind of guy. How terribly sad

    The outpouring of grief and love for this young man yesterday was truly heartwarming. It has been a long time since I have seen anything like it. Totally genuine and straight from the heart.

    How the fuck did he die? I could google it but I'm just pissed off by the fact that I've seen multiple threads on different website for not one of them contain the link describing the details of the accident, nor any attempts at discussing it

    I thought you were being serious when you said no link was needed, since this story has been everywhere.

    Basically they were on a motorboat at top speed and crashed into a jetty. Since it was nighttime, they probably just didn't see it. No life vests, although that probably didn't matter anyway.

    Yeah, when you get dashed upon the rocks, ain't no life vest going to save you unless it comes with airbags.

    I'm a complete noob when it comes to boating. When that happens do you get flown a bunch of feet in the air and die from the impact/trauma?

    Going fast in the dark anywhere near the shore is asking to die.

    What are you talking about you have lost me. I just said I was instantly reminded of the Indians players killed in a boating accident when I heard of Fernandez. I never mentioned anything about a link

    That was @ Zo. I was showing that you said it was a boating accident when he was all confused on what happened.

    Did he sign a "big" deal with the Marlins, or was still in arb mode? If he did sign a big deal, do the marlins have to pay that out to someone?

    He was going to be in arb until after 2018.

    A team would never have to pay out a deal to a player who has passed. Family will collect life insurance.

    If there's an injury, teams have insurance for that as well. Only goes so far though (EX: I don't believe the Rangers are 100% covered on Prince).

    Gives the whole situation a little less empathy. Boating in pitch black is dumb enough but while wasted and on hard drugs?

    :cmon:

    Couldn't he just blow off steam with just the booze and coke without having to operate a boat

    The coke is a new wrinkle - but I figured the booze was assumed.

    There's no point on any drug where I'm that reckless. Stupid people die.

    What's with the narrative that I'm a horrible person if I don't feel sad over this? 2 of the 3 dudes were on blow, all 3 had alcohol in their system, and they were driving a boat way too fast at night...I don't think that is some huge tragedy. :sorrynotsorry:
