Kirby Puckett, ad astra

Dies at 45. I'm pretty stunned.

A few months ago I wrote about his career in comparison to Dale Murphy. Let me be clear: I think Puckett had a hall of fame caliber career (I just think Murphy did too).

Damn if he didn't have to make that catch up against the plexiglass in '91.
