  • Former Cub, Geremi Gonzalez, killed by lightning

    Former Cubs farmhand, Jeremi Gonzalez was struck by lightning and killed in Venezuela. The 33 year old Gonzalez pitched for five major league teams from 1997 to 2006. The right-hander appeared in 131 games with 83 starts, compiling a 30-35 record.

    Personally, I'll never forget his shutout against the Cardinals, he looked like he had a quality future in the fold before him but arm troubles set in and the rest is history.
    What a Batted Ball is Worth (in terms of a run):

    HBP: .342
    Non-Intentional Walk: .315
    Intentional Walk: .176
    Outfield Fly: .035
    Groundball: -.101
    Bunts: -.103
    Infield Fly: -.243
    Strikeout: -.287

      Not more than a week before this happened, I had been thinking about him and wondering what happened to him. He gave us some good memories. RIP buddy.
