    Shit – now we have to resign Towers… local media has indicated the aneurysm was more of the Len Bias variety than the John Olerud (or late period Nirvana b-side).

    I just wanted to say that I know Joes’ mom and so far I’ve heard no cause of death. If this is just a rumor…it should really stop until there is something official. This family does not need rumors and stuff right now….they need the love and prayers of the country, the baseball community and all of us who love someone or many someones.
