    Don't even know what to say about this one. Can't process it. I'm in shock. May have been the most talented pitcher in the league. I lost touch with my Marlins after all the bullcrap but to see a young star go from my former favorite team is just insane.

    I just barely logged into to check the news and am stunned.

    RIP Jose

    Not a Marlins fan but my Dad told me about this via text and I had no clue what happened until I came online. Awful news. Life isn't fair.

    According to the Coast Guard the boat crashed into the jetty at Government Cut going about 40 MPH. It was dark and the operator of the boat probably thought they were safely within the channel rather than heading straight for the jetty. Two of the men ended up mangled on the rocks while the other was slung into the channel.

    I feel so low. I had stopped paying attention to the Marlins for the year after their August-early September collapse. I had no doubts Jose was moving on soon from Miami, off to greener pastures for the life and success that he deserved, considering what he went through to achieve his dream.

    The heart of the Marlins has been ripped out. You can't replace it - and I don't think you ever will.

    Keep on smiling, Jose.
