Holy crap! The odd thing is this totally struck me as a huge surprise, moreso than a wrestler death. I can't remember the last time a player just died like this.

I was napping with the Fox game of the week on sort of half-listening to the game in the background, and they made that announcement, I shot right up.

Forget a player just dying like this...when do people in their physical prime EVER just die in their sleep? I am almost afraid to find out the cause.

Unbelievable...

My prayers and thoughts go out to his family.

On the fantasy note, he's on one of my teams...purely for roster space, I should release him, but even the thought of doing that makes me feel guilty. Any thoughts on what you'd do?

I almost hope this was steroids related, so the Majors have a real reason to crack down on them.

I don't recall the last time a big name player died during the regular season. I know that guy who used to play third for the Braves, Tony Oliva died a couple years back. And the Indians of course lost the three pitchers in that boating accident... But it's always startling news.

And to the person who didn't want to drop him from their fantasy team - I already did. I realize it's just a game - but the game goes on as does life.

The last "big name" player that I can think of is Thurman Munson back in 1979.

Current reports are saying that Kile died in his sleep of "natural causes"

CNN reports that his father died at 44 of a blood clot in his brain. A similar problem claimed the life of one of the kids in my high school graduating class, so I don't think it's steroid-related. Just an immense tragedy for his family and the Cards.

He really was a great guy. I had the opportunity to meet him last year after a game at Bush Stadium. I was in shock when I heard about this.

It might not be because of drug use (I'm looking beyond steriods as well when thinking about this tragedy), but the wrestling fan in me who has seen numerous incidents like this in wrestling, especially with the term "natural causes" used makes me think some type of drug was involved.

Wow... this is an absolute shock to me as well. I honestly do hope it's of some kind of natural, non-drug-induced death. Hope that Palpatine is on the right track about the blood clot thing - although hoping that's how somebody died strikes me as just odd....

BDC, I understand your situation, he's on my team as well. While releasing him probably wouldn't affect me at all - I'm languishing (and I do mean languishing) in last, but I probably still will have to release him... maybe there's some way I can put him on the DL the rest of the year.

To Phil, Munson died via plane crash, so it's not entirely the same situation.

My condolences go out to Kile's family, and the Cardinals organization.

Yeah... the closest I can think of recently was Mike Darr, and that was just four months ago. Car crash there. And what about Roberto Clemente? Plane crash, precisely 3000 hits.

They are still saying the death was natural death, which sound fishy to me.

I was pulling into the supermarket parking lot when I heard the press conference on the radio announcing his death. It put me into shock. Baseball has lost a quality player and a quality person.

I am not going to speculate until I hear what the coroner has to say.

Well, I listened to ESPN radio all the way home today.

* Prelim autopsy shows natural causes, with 3 of his arteries being 80% clogged. (or something similar. You get the point)

* Tonight's game at Wrigley (starting minutes from now) will no frills. No scores on the scoreboard, no music, no announcements (except batters and pitchers).

Munson was the last player to die during the season. Don Baylor talked today about how the Angels coped with the death of Lymon Bostock in 1978 (I believe).

It's hit St. Louis hard. With Jack Buck we knew it was a matter of time.... but D. Kile was a shock. He was well respected.... and a role model. I know the shock was felt here and in chicago and houston.... it's just a sad time.

It's not the same sport, but the closest thing this reminds me of is Reggie Lewis.

My boss sat next to Kile's brother (who's a Portland,OR cop) at a game at Safeco just two weeks ago. What a huge bummer all around.

Just shocking. The first thing I told my better half was "that's the end of their season." For them to build up SO MUCH steam in the pitching department after struggling with it for so long only to have part of it yanked out from underneath them (as well as Jack Buck's death) so quickly and so shockingly is a blow that takes a long time to recover from. An injury is one thing. Losing a beloved teammate forever is another.

To see Joe Buck announcing this and doing the interviews so soon after his own dad's death...

I've been in radio over half my life, and I couldn't have done it.

The worst part about it, though, was there was nothing they could do. No symptoms beforehand, family history... that's about half of these cases. Just hope no one goes off on them finding a small amount of what they believe to be pot in there...

The stories mention that he had experienced some shoulder pain and weakness...

Not unusual for a pitcher who throws as hard as Kile did. No doc in the world would question that his shoulder pain was due to pitching, especially since he had surgery on his right shoulder in the offseason...

I also heard a lot of talk this morning about the police finding what may be a small bag of marijuana in his hotel bathroom. I have a feeling the commisioner's office is going to use that to try and push for mandatory drug testing which will lead to a strike unfortunately. I had just gotten back into enjoying baseball again after many years so I really hope this doesn't develop that way. It would be a a tragedy for Kile's death to inadvertantly lead to a strike b\c years from now that would be all it was remembered for. Not for the man and athlete himself.

No offense, but if you were REALLY intereted in the most basic of the rules of baseball, it probably wouldn't kill you to actually do your own research instead of asking on this forum. That's not really what it's here for.
