Tragic loss for a true professional

Keep the family of Bob Ryan in your thoughts. His son, Keith, was found dead in Pakistan earlier this week.

Bob is a New Jersey native who works for the Boston Globe as a columnist. If you read Bob, you know his passion for baseball and the respect he has for the Yankees. In a business full of pandering yahoos, he’s one guy who always writes what he believes. Some kids grew up wanting to be the center fielder. I grew up wanting to be Bob Ryan.

In speaking to some friends I have at the Globe, the whole staff is in shock. Hopefully Bob will make his peace with this and we’ll see him at spring training.
