It would have been nice if he could have exited stage left under different circumstances, but this has only been magnified by the atrocious season this team has put on display this year.
He's always been a team guy and we were blessed to have him when we did. These guys only come along a couple of times in our lifetime. We were blessed he and the Big Hurt wore the Pale Hose..
It seemed like it happened awful fast with PK, he was great the first half last year but then he got hit near the eye, another injury which I can't remember and then the concussion. I was hoping for a career for PK like Yaz had playing till 43, even he might have stayed on a year too long.
