    One of my all-time favorite players. Loved watching him play. Very, very sad day.

    RIP.

    That is horrible.

    I saw him in an interview this winter, and that mouth did not look good.

    One of the most enjoyable and accommodating players to be around during his era. An absolute pleasure. My enduring memory will be of him swatting baseballs through his beloved 5.5 hole.

    RIP

    The best hitter of my lifetime - and I'll be 40 in July.

    He would have gotten to .400. Thanks, Bud!

    I don't think we'll ever see .338 lifetime again.
