I hate writing these posts, but we are a baseball blog and regardless of us being a Yankee website, you know we talk about life here... and in this case, we talk about death unfortunately.
It's being reported now that 22 year old St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras was killed in a car accident with his girlfriend in the Dominican Republic. We have this tweet here from USA Today's Bob Nightengale:
Oscar Taveras' agent is telling news reporters in the Dominican that Oscar Taveras was killed in a car wreck. Horrible. #STLCards.Wow.

It doesn't matter if you know who he was or not. It's a sad day in baseball and of course, we need to send prayers Oscar's way as well as to the St. Louis Cardinals organization.
Rest in peace.
