Condolences to Delmon
Bonnie Young, the mother of the Twins’ Delmon and the Nationals’ Dmitri, passed away today. She had been battling cancer for some time. Delmon left the Twins last Friday and was expected to be back on Friday. With funeral plans pending, I would hope that the Twins and Major League Baseball would be decent enough to give him a few more days. Life keeps finding ways to remind us all about how meaningless baseball is in the big scheme of things. It kind of puts the whole four game series in New York into proper perspective. I certainly send my best to Delmon and the rest of the Young family. Come back when you’re ready.
