I know this will probably be moved, but I hope in the time it stays on the front page it will get to as many people as possible, This is about Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer and his brothers untimely death. It is one of the most touching stories I have ever read.

 

Max Scherzer: A brother's passage


Feuer und Wasser kommt nicht zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

I commend the Scherzer family for opening up and being so honest in regards to Alex's death.  Having lost a young friend of the family back in January to suicide, I think the more it's talked about, the better.

My wife and I read this aloud on our drive to the game today. It's an incredible and moving story.

Very good story.
