I was thinking quit a bit about Nick Adenhart recently, after they brought him up on the Tim Mead episode of Angels weekly. That short segment really affected me, which was surprising ten years later. I can't believe we are right back here again.

Thought the same thing....April 2009 all over...or, if you're old enough, 1977 (Bostock) or Mike Miley or Bruce Heinbecher....

This is just way too much. Adenhart, Valbuena, Trout's brother-in-law, and now Skaggs.

What the flying F*ck.

Tommy Hanson too.

Sigh... unbelievable.  This horrible stuff always makes baseball seem so tiny.  Rest In Peace Tyler.  Not sure what else to say.  

I mean an hour or 2 ago he had post on social media about them all dressed in cowboy hats and stuff.  Just unreal how fleeting everything is.

I expected NHL.and NBA free agent headlines and saw this. I could not believe this! I was at the game Saturday night, and watched him carefully. He sure looked solid and ready for a nice second half.

Still in shock. Great guy in the prime of life. Everything else sports related loses any importance.

Just a post on FB about Tyler's passing. Been watching MLB Network since I read this tragic news. What a loss, thoughts go out to his family and the Angels players!

Haven't posted here in years now but didn't know where else to turn. How crazily sad. Way too young, seemed like way too nice a guy as well.

This is absolutely fucked. RIP Tyler.

Wish you were back for a different reason, but it's always good to know there's a place where you know people will understand how you're feeling.

Reminds me of the passing of Don Drysdale, who was also found deceased  in his hotel room. So bad, so sad. RIP Tyler.

The Cardinals also had a key starting pitcher, Darryl Kile, tragically pass away in his room during the 2002 season.    I remember being shocked with that, because like with Nick Adenhart's tragic passing, all MLB players and support staff are a part of us. 

R.I.P. Tyler, worst part obviously is his life being taken from him so young, and on top of that he was starting to try to emerge again as a solid pitcher.
