Paul Allen just announced on KFAn that he got an e-mail from a friend of the family that Harmon passed away this morning in hospice care in Arizona. Wow. Going from just announcing last Friday that they had given up treating his esophogeal cancer to four days later passing away. he was one of the few true greats still around. RIP, Mr. Killebrew.
-edit- could a mod please put the Twins logo on the thread. Thank you.
Pending physicals, the Yankees just acquired Damaso Marte and Xavier Nady (sportsillustrated.cnn.com) from Pittsburgh for Russ Ohlendorf (who they got from Arizona in the Randy Johnson trade), Jose Tabata, and two others from the low minors.
