    RIP Yordanno Ventura

    Died in a car crash last night.

    Edit: I just saw Andrew Marte died in a separate accident

    Andy Marte died in a separate car accident in the DR. Both were reported to be under the influence. Insane.

    It will never happen to me. Sad.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Re: RIP Yordanno Ventura

    Is this less of a story because:

    1. It didn't happen in the middle of the season, like Jose Fernandez
    2. Because Ventura isn't as good/popular as JF
    3. Both of the above

    3, but mostly 2.

    MLB has an alcohol problem that they have been ignoring for decades. The penalties for DWI arrest are soft compared to other leagues.

    Sad. Hopefully they didn't kill anyone else.

    I saw some reports on Ventura. Did he really roll his jeep into a house and get thrown from the vehicle?

    I haven't look at Marte other than the article that said Marte faced Venture in his last MLB game.

    Police tweeted a photo. Vehicle did look to be some sort of jeep that was rolled, but I didn't see a house. The photo included a pic of the body (mildly nsfw) and it did look like he was thrown from the car.

    Maybe I was combining 2 different things I read. Though I only saw limited info.

    One said he rolled his jeep and he was thrown from the car the other said he ran into a house when he lost control. I guess it doesn't really matter.

    I think it's a big deal and I knew who both players were. They were both outstanding players. They weren't elite like Fernandez but they were great.

    Also because reports of alcohol being involved might have turned away some sympathy. That wasn't the case with Fernandez initially. Drinking and driving is a major issue in the DR -- MLB needs to get pretty involved in this.

    Sad...too many loses in one year
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Pedro Martinez seems to be alleging that Yordano was alive after his crash, but instead of being helped, he was robbed and left to die.

    News circulating from other sources alleging the same thing. His WS ring was taken in the process. Brutal.

    I went to the DR a few years ago. We left the resort area twice to do group excursions and it was fine. Not sure I'd go hiking anywhere near the Haitian border, though.

    That seems like good advice. The resort we are staying at has everything we need, and frankly for once I want to spend a quiet time with little movement.


    Thanks

    I stayed at Secrets last summer. I walked north up the beach, but not that far (Secrets is probably 5 or 6 mile south of where you are going). The only place I ventured off the property was along the shore. Lot's of people trying to get you to buy their things when you are off the property. Beautiful area though.

    Have a good trip.

    Sorry for hijacking your RIP thread Yordanno.

    No, but the DR is a good place to be to get away from winter
