After seeing the picture of a happy Pat Neshek and his wife along with a seemingly healthy baby, and then hearing the baby passed unexpectadly makes me want to cry. It sucks how unfair life can be. So sorry for Pat and his family.

I saw that earlier tonight. Having just celebrated my boys' birthday it makes me ill thinking about it. I couldn't even begin to imagine how awful it is.

Absolutely horrible news. Just when you would think life is on an upswing, a tragedy happens. Definitely praying for his wife and the rest of their family.

The highest of highs and the lowest of lows, really makes you appreciate the good things you have and not take them for granted. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Neshek family.

Feel absolutely terrible about this news. Always admired Neshek, and can't imagine the heartbreak of carrying to term, and then winning a division, watching the birth of your child, and then....this....within the period of a day. Deepest sympathies for the Nesheks.

What a devastating thing to have happen. I can't even imagine. Certainly puts things in perspective.
If Twins can't re-sign Hunter, plans are to trade, sign a FA or go in-house to find a replacement.

My heart breaks for them. I can't even begin to imagine what they're going through. Thoughts definitely with Pat and his family.

Not that this matters at all, but I hope the A's can make a long run in the playoffs and Neshek can be a part of it, again, not that it makes things better or whatnot but I hope he can at least see a little bit of joy/happiness in the near future.

Jesus, I can't even imagine how brutal that would be. To go from the first 23 hours of your life to the worst days of your life. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.

An emoticon for a post title really left me blindsided by the horrible news it contained. Don't do it that way, please.

I was lucky enough to be in my car when I first heard the news on Reusse and Mackey.
