Re: Kirby Puckett has died...
I found this very interesting...
Jr. visited Puckett's hospital room both late last night and earlier this afternoon, I had no idea they were that close of friends.
Here's the story from Marc's blog:
RIP, Kirby Puckett
SARASOTA -- There was a lot of talk buzzing through baseball circles this afternoon that Kirby Puckett's stroke was far more serious than most of Sunday's reports seemed to indicate. Tonight comes news that Pucket has died at age 44.
Reds GM Wayne Krivsky spent a good portion of his day calling Twins contacts, trying to stay apprised of the situation. I'll post some thoughts from him later.
Ken Griffey Jr. visited Puckett's hospital room in Phoenix late last night and was back at the hospital this afternoon. He, too, spent the day trying to track down updates on his friend.
It just seems like the bad news has been flowing over the last week. I hope this is the end of it. My best wishes go out to Puckett's family and friends.
