Former Yankees pitcher Hideki Irabu was found dead at his California home yesterday. The initial reports came from the Japanese paper, Asahi Shimbum, and his death has since been confirmed by the New York Yankees. Suicide by hanging is suspected.

Wow, very sad news to hear indeed. Life must have become very difficult for the gentleman.

Sounds like he was an alcoholic and really never recovered from the torment of failing to meet expectations in New York and surely back home in Japan. Sad.

I love the idea of him teaching dirty Japanese words to Chili Davis.

Sad story. But on the bright side, all toads go to heaven.
