    Exactly.
    My thoughts exactly when i was reading all these "hope its not him".

    Regardless, this is heartbreaking.

    Rip to the good Doctor. One of all time favourites. This one stings quite a bit.

    Check out the type of plane. Easier to understand how it may have crashed in the ocean.

    I am soo saddened by this. I loved Roy Halladay. Used to be my favorite pitcher until Kershaw came around.

    RIP Roy Halladay

    The Phillies acquiring Roy Halladay was my favorite move the Phillies have ever done (acquiring talent via FA, trade, whatever) as he was obviously a great pitcher but was my favorite pitcher in baseball at the time. I got to see him more and know about him more and what he did to communities and how he loved the game. Just looking at his twitter and how much he loved to teach the game. As noodles said, this one certainly stings.

    Indeed - I don't subscribe to that notion either.

    If it was an eccentric 102 year old aviation enthusiast would it be the same degree of tragedy? Probs not.

    To a further extent, the idea that the death would be heartbreaking regardless of who it was doesn't jive with me either. 105 people die every minute. Nearly two people perish from this earth every waking second. No one's heart has the capacity to grieve for all of these people. Death is death. Everyone dies. Some deaths are objectively more tragic than others, all deaths are inevitable.

    Halladay bought the plane in October.

    'I've been dreaming about flying since I was a boy but was only able to become a pilot once I retired from baseball,' he said.

    'I've owned other aircraft, but no aircraft embodies the adventure or captured the dream of flying like the A5. Not only is it the safest and easiest aircraft I've ever flown, it is hands-down the most fun.

    'The beaches, lakes, and waterways my family and I get to explore around Florida are mind-blowing. Words don't do justice to what the A5 allows us to experience.

    'Even my wife, who used to be uncomfortable in small planes, now asks where we should take the A5 for

    This is awful. Though only on the Phillies for a quarter of his career, he easily became one of my favorites to ever put on a Phillies uniform.

    Bummer, man. He was a favorite non-Cub of mine. Always used to way overdraft him in Fantasy.

    Sucks.
