I guess he’ll miss a few starts.
It sounds like he was headed to this sort of death, anyway.
WOW, thats a lot of crap to have in your system at one time!!!
I shouldnt laugh at that, but I am. LMAO.
He came from a good family.
He had a triple death wish going on..... “

I don’t get it. Life is plenty fine without this stuff. This guy had a big bright future ahead of him.
I have a few beers a year. I don’t need that either, but it’s not going to put my lights out.
I’ve even considered stopping drinking.
These things are not essential to a happy life.
We knew some of his family members in California. Nice guy. Sad to see this happen.
How do you safely balance all of that, prior to a game? Fentanyl alone is dangerous.
Was the drug use to ease the pain of injuries, under medical care, or was it a stupid recreational CHOICE?
He died from about $10 in illegally gotten drugs.
There are so many healthy things to make you happy he will never experience, now.
It was is choice.
Got Prince and Tom Petty too
Im going to guess the answer to that was Yes.
Sounds like he had a serious substance abuse problem. Very sad
And why, exactly do you find this so amusing?
“How do you safely balance all of that, prior to a game? Fentanyl alone is dangerous.”
I thought Post #2 was funny as hell. Is that OK with you?
Saw a report that said something to effect of family suspects an Angel’s employee was also involved?
I think the fenteynol is a contaminant in some drugs - added (unbeknownst to the user) to spice up the effects.
