Joba: Here is a beautiful Joba quote concerning the passing of Nick Adenhart:
"We're all a family in the game of baseball, We all have to go through things that are tough, but you can never put this into words. A young man pitches his tail off the night before for his team and the next thing you know, it's all over with. It's unfathomable."
