Lucas Duda

“Well Terry (Collins, Mets manager) called me into his office and gave me a big ol’ hug. I just figured it was one of his normal hug meetings, but then he started sobbing. Big, heaving sobs. Once he started screaming “Why? Why God, Why?” I knew something had gone down.”

Yet another tragic death of a young Major League player occurred today when Yordano Ventura dies in a car crash in the Dominican Republic. Along with Ventura, former player Andy Marte also perished in the accident. I’m not sure of the specifics surrounding the event, but to be honest, I’m not interested in finding them out. This has been happening way too much lately, and I’m simply not a fan of people dying.
