• Sad News On John Brattain

    Posted by on March 24th, 2009 · Comments (3)

    In case you didn’t happen to see this over at The Hardball Times, John Brattain passed away today.

    I’m sick to my stomach over this news. It’s the same feeling I had when I heard about Doug Pappas and Todd Drew.

    Really. I’m at a loss for words.

    I never met John. And, I never spoke to him. But, in my internet-related exchanges with him, Brattain always seemed like a really good guy. In fact, John just left a comment here three days ago.

    The Baseball-Internet-Circle lost a good one today. I’m just stunned by this terrible news.

      I can’t believe this.

      I’ve spoken to him via email many times over the years and also feel sick hearing this news.

      John was a friend and will be missed.

      I’ve seen this around and it just kind of shocks me. Always loved his columns and the comments he left over at BTF. I’ll miss reading them.

      Condolences to his family and friends.
