The Strange, Sad Tale of John Odom

Passing the time on the train last night, I came across this story on my phone. Some of you might remember the apparently funny news of minor league pitcher John Odom being traded last May for a crate of bats. There was even a Fanpost about it here at BCB. Well, unbeknownst to many (including me), the story took a tragic twist this past November. It just goes to show that, for every Josh Hamilton, there are many other ballplayers who go down swinging against their personal demons.
