I’ve got some good news and bad news for my dear friends who live and die with the exploits of the New York Yankees.

The good news is that your 2005 2nd Round Draft Pick, reliever J. Brent Cox just completed a remarkable season for the newly crowned National Champion Texas Longhorns, saving 19 games, two of ’em in the College World Series. Cox didn’t allow an earned run in any of his 5 CWS appearances, and he recorded the final 5 outs of today’s 6-2 clincher over Florida.

The bad news is, he was stomped to death seconds later (above).
