    Hmmm. The Pads lost Tony Gwynn and Jerry Coleman last year. Those were huge blows to the city and franchise. After that probably Trevor Hoffman, Randy Jones and Dave Winfield. Steve Garvey might be a stretch.

    I think I would also add Richardson & Kubek to the Yankee list, due to their ties to the early 60's teams.

    Blue Jays: Joe Carter because of the home run.

    Because of what he does for the Mariners.. Edgar for sure, but Grffey would be the shocker..

    Paul Molitor for the Twins/Brewers, Dale Murphy for the Braves, and right now Jeter for the Yankees..

    While any of those would be big losses, I can think of one other Padre...

    I don't know, Molitor only played 3 years for the Twins when they weren't very good. If he weren't their manager, I wouldn't see a huge impact.

    I can't see Richardson , Kubek , or Olivia being a big blip to the "community". I could be wrong , just don't see them as being of that caliber.

    Molitor would suuuuuuuuuuuuuuck personally, but I'm not sure how Brewer fans would react. He's not that old anyway, so I'm sure it's on no one's radar.

    If we're talking about the impact beyond baseball, Uecker's death might be one of the biggest in the whole game; possibly the next major sports figure to pass. It's going to be a terrible time when that happens.

    Yeah I'm sure baseball-wide right now is Vin, then Ueck, then there's a huge empty feeling.
