Crazy. Me, Puckguy, and former CCSLCer DirtyCurty went to an A's Cardinals game this past June where Kennedy started. Crazy to think he's gone now :(

I just saw him in September a couple of times -- I took a few pictures of him as well... nothing spectacular but I will post anyways when I get the chance.

Saw him at PNC Park when he was a rookie for the Rockies. Jason Kendall charged him and it sparked a bench-clearing scuffle. It's stuck in my mind ever since, the image of a smaller Kendall jumping up to headlock the bigger pitcher. Weird and sad to read about this.

And on a side note, what is it with all these pitchers dying in the last couple years? (Kennedy, Lidle, Hancock)

Lidle died in a plane crash. Hancock died in a drunk-driving accident. I don't see how either relate to Kennedy.

He was a regular guest on the "Bubba The Love Sponge" show on Howard 101 (Sirius, in case you didn't know)...it'll be interesting to hear the guys' discussion of this on Monday.

I knew about why Hancock and Lidle died, I just found it strange and eerie that 3 active MLB pitchers died in the same year, that's all.

I to find that wierd. We went a good 6 years without a death in baseball. Then, in a span of 14 months, three of them are gone. I hate to see stuff like this happen, as the rest of us most likely do. It's sad because he was just beginning to hit the prime of his career. I remember when he was considered the staff ace on Tampa Bay, when he went something like 3-12. RIP Joe, we hardly knew you...

Lidle died in '06, after the Yankee's got elimiated from the playoffs. Hancock and Kennedy both died in '07. But I understand what you were getting at.
