What Could Have Been,Will Never Be

No.The first word to come out of my mouth after hearing about Miami Marlins pitching phenom Jose Fernandez.Then ,out came the expletives.I just couldn't believe it.Still can't.We never got to see Jose win his first Cy Young award.We never got to witness his 20 strikeout game  against the Mets and we never got to witness his first 20 win season.That perfect game he threw In 2017 versus the Rays,not happening.Jose was well on his way to becoming one of the biggest stories In baseball   ,If he wasn't already.Wherever you are up there,know that you will be remembered.Not just by your family,but by Major League Baseball,It's fans and the Latino American community as a whole.I hate to coin the often used phrase "rest in peace",because that, to me ,Is something you would say if someone was already up in age and sick of life's conundrums and nuances.Tired of the aches and pains that go along with old age before finally coming to their final resting place.Jose Fernandez seemed to be a young  man already at peace.And that's what makes this so hard to stomach.That,and the fact that he had a kid on the way.For what It's worth,my condolences go out  to his family both on and off the field.
