    Former first-rounder for the Angels; he just pitched Saturday. He died earlier today in Texas.

    All respect to MTM in the MLB thread, but deserves it own topic.

    RIP. Thoughts and prayers are not enough.

    Devastating news. Skaggs went to my high school. His mom was the softball coach when he was there.

    So sad. The Angels have lost a number of active players over the tears. Lyman Bostock and Nick Adenhart to name two.

    27 is way too young.

    Awful stuff. Natural or accident, has anything come out on that? Whatever, 27 year olds should not be dying.

    Eight days after the anniversary of Darryl Kile’s death in 2002. Christ, what an awful thing for Skaggs’ family.

    Chico Ruiz, Mike Miley, Lyman Bostock, Nick Adenhart, Luis Valbuena, now Skaggs. Plus, the bus crash.
