    Yeah it's hard for me to feel sympathy for him. Obviously he had some things troubling him, but suicide isn't the answer.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    To Ryan Freel it was. Unless you stand in his shoes, you'll never understand.

    Would you willingly subject a family member to torture? Why? Why not let them have peace? It's selfish to want someone to live a life of agony and despair.

    Being a baseball player does not make one immune to depression.

    We all have our problems. Some probably pretty similar to his. But suicide doesn't solve the problem. There are other ways.

    Same here. I liked watching him play too. I always thought his career dwindled and ended rather abruptly. I always compared him to Chone Figgins because he could play just about any position on the field and hit leadoff.

    It's always very sad to hear or read about a suicide.

    Worst past leaving those 2 children behind, Reds being my 2nd favorite team. Rooted for him.

    ****, RIP. Dude was a solid utility player for the Reds for a while. That's really sad, I wasn't even aware he retired, he was always one of those "wonder where he is now" players for me."

    Sad ****, RIP, prayers and thoughts go out to his family, friends, and the Reds organization

    This is wrong. Yeah, suicide was his option, but it wasn't the right one to take. There's tons of ways to go when you're depressed, some worse/better than others, but there's always a way out, and this isn't it. This does by far more damage than any

    All the way. He was the first player I ever faced in MVP 05 owner mode! Mets opened up with Cincy in 05 and I believe he was the leadoff guy... followed by Felipe Lopez of course? Lol

    He was an exciting player for a bit, but....

    i hate when people take their own life with no regard for their family and other people who loved him. It's a selfish act. People lose loved ones every day when they couldn't do anything about it. He had a choice and made the one that left his wife and TWO DAUGHTERS behind without a husband/father.

    I feel bad for his friends and family who are crushed by his selfishness.

    Sorry but no "RIP" from me. Only my deepest condolences to his family.
