On a sad note, I want to acknowledge the passing yesterday of baseball Hall of Famer and legend, Kirby Puckett, who died from a stroke yesterday at the tender age of 44. He had a smile and an infectious love for the game. The game will be poorer for his loss. He is as identified with the Minnesota Twins as Tony Gwynn is identified with the San Diego Padres as Ted Williams or Carl Yaztremski are with the Boston Red Sox.
