I wish this was a joke, but it's not. A few weeks ago I mentioned my bemusement at the cropping of Grady Sizemore fan clubs in the Cleveland area, noting that one of the biggest and most entertaining ones was the sisterhood of Grady's Ladies.
Well, apparently this weekend one of the founders of Grady's Ladies -- Michelle Mielecki -- was shot and killed by her boyfriend, who subsequently shot himself.
I don't really have words for this. I know it's not really baseball-related, but as a female baseball fan, I feel a lot of sympathy for what the rest of the group must be going through right now. It's pretty messed up.
Thanks to Conor for forwarding me the link, even if it freaked me out.
