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.
From the article on ESPN.com, it suggests that they could set the strike date of Aug. 30 on friday. The reason the players have not set a date yet, is because it would be a PR disaster for them if they do strike.
