Godspeed, Killer

News Item: Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew enters hospice care

I never saw Killebrew play; he was before my time. But everything I've ever heard about the man says he's all-time nice guy, in addition to being one of the very greatest sluggers in baseball history.

The Twins are a relatively young franchise, and therefore nearly all of their all-time greats (other than Kirby Puckett, I mean) are still alive. I'll be very sad when Killebrew is gone as well.
