Holy crap, that is just terrible news. He had an incredibly bright future ahead of him. I'm truly in shock. Prayers to his family.

Jeesh, right after the Jets debacle I was talking about Brian Cole for some strange reason...

So sad, RIP

"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Really awful. I'm kind of in shock.

Cards waiting for official confirmation, but offer condolences to his family.

His 18-year old girlfriend reportedly died, too.

My condolences to his family, and to the Cardinal nation. One of my favorite franchises. Hate this news.

It's particularly sad that things ended on such a sour note.
