R.I.P. Joe Kennedy

Joe Kennedy, who pitched briefly for the Diamondbacks in 2007, collapsed and died early Friday morning in Florida. He was 28. He leaves behind a wife, Jami, and a 1-year-old son, Kaige.

Kennedy, a Denver-area resident was in Florida to be the best man at a wedding.

Cause of death has not yet been determined.

Condolences to the Kennedy family and the friends whose wedding he was going to help celebrate.

    I’m so sorry for his family and friends. He was quite popular with the fans, quite charming. It’s the journeymen like him who are the real stars of baseball.

    I was reading the SF Chronic, and the article about Joe mentions that he bred pugs and gave the puppies away.

    That choked me up. Pug people are about the nicest people; the dog is an ego extension, and anyone who loves pugs tends to be as sweet natured as their dogs.
