Very sad.I wish his family the best as they come together and mourn.


As someone who had a sibling die of cancer in her mid 20's and watched multiple elder relatives slowly die from cancer and the suffering they went through this is very difficult to see no matter who it is, but especially at that age.Just isn't meant to happen you would think.Pancreatic cancer is a horrible way to go too.Very very painful. 


Not to go off on a tangent, but I wish Americans on both sides of the political aisle would have a grownup discussion about allowing voluntary euthanasia with lucid terminal patients who are suffering and wish to die.Dr kevorkian was right all along.

I had just spent an hour Tuesday talking with a scout about Flores in doing research for my upcoming Red Sox list. His text Wednesday night was two words: "F*** cancer"
