This isn't a baseball thing, but just a life thing. Sadly, all over the Tri-State this morning we are hearing about the death of former Jets Running Back Joe McKnight. Apparently he was killed in what seems to be a road rage incident. The info is slowing coming out. We'll take the Chicago Tribune on this one:

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said the incident involving McKnight happened about 2:43 p.m. Thursday in Terrytown, a suburb of New Orleans.
The 28-year-old running back was standing outside his car when he was shot by Ronald Gasser, 54, Normand said during a news conference at the scene of the shooting."
