    Phil Niekro, RIP

    Per MLB Network, Phil Niekro has died at 81. Another great one is gone too soon.

    Well I don't know about too soon, he was 81. Amazingly he had 121 wins after 40. Took him way too many years to get in the hof as well. They looked down on knuckleballers for some reason.

    Anybody who dies from cancer has died too soon. It doesn't matter the age.

    Last I checked, "too soon" and "young" are not one and the same. Not to mention dude has a history of belittling dead HOF'ers.
