Joe Kennedy, 28, passes away

Filling the pen just got more expensive
Twins' demands for Santana coming into view

Blue Jays pitcher Joe Kennedy died earlier this morning at his home in Florida. Ken Rosenthal speculates that the young lefty died from a sudden heart attack or brain aneurysm. This tragic death gives us just one more reason to be thankful that Shelley Duncan, after suffering a blood clot in his arm, is okay and will be healthy enough for spring training. Our thoughts go out to Kennedy and his family.

    It’s a shame. On the other hand, he got to live a dream most guys (me included) would sell their souls for.

      I would rather live a full life then die at 28 and have played MLB. Very sad loss.

    I heard him on the Bubba The Love Sponge on Sirius a few times. He was good friends with Bubba. Seemed like a great guy. My heart goes out to his family.
