The death of Frank Castillo–who Cubs fans like me remember, but hardly anybody does–was the fourth such death of a Cubs pitcher from the 1990s in the past few years. I don’t know why it’s only the pitchers involved, but even one of these would be strange enough. Four of them, though, is just too bizarre not to mention. So I wrote a piece about it, and it appeared on ThroughTheFenceBaseball today.
Let’s all enjoy our lives while we’re still lucky enough to have them.
