And another one gone, and another one gone...

Just taking out a minute to be freaked out about all the baseball deaths within the last week:

Harry Kalas, 73, legendary Phillies announcer, found unconscious in the broadcast booth.

Mark Fidrych, 54, aka "the Bird", crazy Tigers ROY from the late 1970's, found dead under his truck while working on his farm.

Nick Adenhart, 22, Angels pitcher, died in a car crash.

Oddly, I'm most struck by Harry Kalas. I listened to him and Richie Ashburn all the time when I was a kid, so it's weird to think that they're both gone now and I'll never hear them again.

(Edit: I rarely remember to read The Dugout anymore, but this is pretty good.)
