They have to do something more to control the drinking and driving from downtown Fullerton.
I enjoy going down there and getting smashed as much as the next person but people, if you've had something to drink make sure you have a DD or take a taxi.. the consequences aren't worth it.

This really sucks. That kid was going to be a staff ace too. I see a curse over the Angels this year. A fan died yesterday and part of the stadium fell onto some seats on opening day. Not good signs.

Unfortunately, this happens to everyday people every day without media coverage.

A drunk person's body is loose and relaxed on impact, allowing it to absorb more. The victims are usually tensed up causing the impact to magnify.

I'm in shock...
Last week I was chatting with him right before he started to warm up for his start against the Cubs at a spring training game in Arizona and now this?
He was a really nice guy, class act all the way, and took time out of his bullpen session to toss a couple signed balls to the little guys.

You know what's even more frustrating, they HAVE cracked down quite a bit there. It's ridiculous.

He pitched a great game last night, you couldn't have asked anything more from the kid considering he was facing a strong A's lineup... just 22! My heart sunk when I heard the news this morning, I can't imagine what his family is going through.... RIP kid.

That's just terrible, terrible news.
