A sudden loss is like a gut-punch. It takes one’s breath away. It hurts. It might bring tears. Some people might become physically ill. It is a horrible feeling, an involuntary reaction to a devastating realization that someone is gone forever.

The news of Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs’s sudden passing was a gut-punch. My heart breaks for those close to him, for his family, his friends, his teammates. In memory of Tyler Skaggs, here is a video of him mowing down Cardinals hitters nine days ago:
