Book closed on former closer

Rod "Shooter" Beck, an All-Star relief pitcher who earned 286 career saves, was found dead in his home Saturday. He was 38. He is best known for his bushy mustache and a deadly stare that intimidated batters throughout his 13-year career. Beck was discovered by police officers responding to a call to his home in suburban Phoenix, police department spokesman Andy Hill said Sunday. Foul play is not suspected, though the cause of death might not be known for several days.

38 year old former pitchers just don't die for no reason. That is unless they spent more time in drug rehab then on the mound. Although I'm guessing that his fu-manchu was sick of the neglect and finally strangled him to death. Adam Morrison, are you paying attention?
