    Hannah Storm just reported it on SC. She said 3 people died when the boat overturned. Found the bodies at 3am.

    Baseball just lost a great guy, not just a great player. This is awful news.

    Re: Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident

    24 years old and arguably the best pitching talent in the sport. What the hell. Not that it matters at this point, but I'm curious what happened to tip the boat - was it jackassery or just tragically unfortunate circumstances...

    I had held out hope that it was a hoax (Rosenthal's career is based on speculation, not declaration, so his word wasn't good enough for me to sink into the reality of the situation).

    Three dead in the boat.
    He escaped Cuba on a boat.

    So did I. But I saw Keith Law, Joel Sherman, Evan Roberts, etc, all tweeting about it. Just saw it break on Fox a few minutes ago.

    Re: Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident

    I believe the validity of that picture because the same person tweeted this over three hours ago (when the accident was supposed to have happened):

    Silva Harapetian ‏@silvaharapetian 3h3 hours ago
    #breakingnews boating accident off Miami Beach. Possible fatalities.

    Oh my goodness, what do you do to yourself internally if you're Adam Conley?

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/1...ating-accident

    Fernandez's start had been pushed back from Sunday to Monday to make room for Adam Conley returning from the disabled list.

    Anything we say in reaction to the news of Jose Fernandez's death seems trivial compared to the magnitude of his loss. He was obviously an amazing pitcher with Hall of Fame potential. But I've been doing this for almost 30 years, and I can only recall a handful of ballplayers who were as naturally vibrant or charismatic. This is just so difficult to understand or accept.
