Guys, this is going to be short. I just really feel like BR needs to say something after the death of Scott Schoeneweis's wife today. Not many pepole noticed this before the game, but there was one man not in the bullpen for the D-Backs.

As a Met fan, I have got to see Scott pitch and now I feel a bit closer to him and a bit sorrier for him after his big lose.

This will look like a letter to Scott from me and hopefully the rest of BR, but this is more a way for me to connect to Scott and the rest of his family.

Scott, we are so sorry for your loss. Losing a wife is the hardest thing in the word. This is a person a man commits his life to, his most loved person in the world.

And I want you to know that baseball and all its fans are with you. We wish you and your family the best and are prayers are with you.

My thoughts and prayers are with Scott and the Schoeneweis Family. Keep your heads high in this tragic time.

Take your time Scott, we will always have a spot in are hearts for you here in the MLB. Wish you the best.


Mike Kent

And the rest of BR
