    Even though his image to me was tarnished with the stuff that happened a few years ago with all the allegations and everything, I still loved the guy as a baseball player - there was no one in the league who had a passion for the game like he did...

    Wow, that is just crappy news. He is one of the best ball players I ever saw. I remember in 1991 after they won game six he was quoted in the club house as saying "Climb on board guys I'll carry us in game seven." Even though he was only 5' 9" and 200 punds he was a mountain of a player!

    That's sad to hear.

    Kirby was a player from a dieing breed. A player who wanted to stay with his team & retire there, despite being offered more money to play somewhere else.

    Those types of players are now few & far in between.

    Ain't that the truth... Hrbek was the same way... Brad Radke is about the only guy left like that on our team...

    Nnnnnoooooo!

    Man, not Kirby!

    He is my all time favorite! He was the epitome of hard work! This just sucks! I had the honor of meeting a week after the won the series in '87! He was the nicest guy in the world!

    God bless Kirby Puckett!
