Shocking News! Former Giants Closer Rod Beck Dead At 38.

I'm just in shock. While looking up info on the website I came across this headline:

Former All-Star Beck dead at 38
Longtime MLB closer found in his home on Saturday

My heart goes out to his family. Til this day I couldn't understand taking Robb Nen over Beck. Watching Beck come in to close was like watching a biker tell the bartender to watch his drink while he goes and kicks some ass!

Thanks for the times Beck aka "The Shooter"

Quote from Rick Thurman, Beck's Agent:

"Rod became a fixture in the San Francisco community where he spent most of his career," Thurman said on Sunday. "Shooter was a hard-nosed, blue-collar kind of guy who wore his heart on his sleeve, and that is what made him so endearing to baseball fans everywhere."
