Monday Night was an emotional night for baseball fans after the tragic death of Miami Marlins Ace Jose Fernandez, The Miami Marlins management decided that they will retire the number 16 so no one will ever wear that number again. Marlins went out and did a pre and post game tributes to Fernandez after their emotional 7-3 victory over the New York Mets. Mike Dunn picked up his fifth victory on the season while Bartolo Colon suffered a loss. Dee Gordon was the only home run that was aloud in the game that came in the first inning after taking a strike while wearing Jose Fernandez batting helmet, right after he took the helmet off and put his normal helmet on he connected with the home run swing that sent the ball flying out to the fans while making Dee Gordon emotional hitting his first home run on the season.
This morning the Miami Police found signed baseballs of Jose Fernandez on the shore about 100 miles from where the accident. That is makes things more sad because he was thinking of fans while he was on the boat, to sign baseballs to give to fans who came to the game. Now MLB is stating that they will still sell Fernandez’s jersey and the proceeds will go to a charity. Shouldn’t the proceeds of his jersey sells belong to his girlfriend to support their soon to be born child?

The NBA trade that shocked the world, might turn out to be the smartest trade in the NBA. I am talking about the Derek Rose trade, This trade is looking to make the Bulls Organization smarter than people give them credit to be with the LAPD making a statement that they are doing an investigation into the rape allegations that have Derek Rose name involved with despite Derek saying he had no involvement in the actions. Do you think that this is going to be a media circus for the Knicks this year? Yes it will be because their is a chance for Rose to be facing Jail Time.
