Updated: Former Astros Luis Valbuena & Jose Castillo killed at car crash #Crawfish_BoxesDecember 2, 2019
Friday morning at around 1 AM Houston time, tragic news broke across the internet that former Astros players Luis Valbuena and José Castillo were killed in a car crash in Venezuela.
They were traveling back to the home of the Lara Cardinals of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League, after having played in and won their Thursday night game.
Their car, which included two other passengers that both luckily survived, reportedly hit a rock in the road, which likely caused the vehicle to lose control.
Chicago flipped him to Houston that offseason with pitcher Dan Straily in return for center fielder Dexter Fowler .
He followed the season up by hitting .260/.357/.459 (124 wRC+) with 13 home runs in 2016 for the most productive stint of his career, albeit in only 90 games.
Bat flips after home runs, after line drive outs , and especially after drawing a walk .
Castillo played for five seasons in the major leagues, and ended in 2008 with a line of .254/.296/.379 and 39 career homers.
The burden of their too-young passing will be borne by their families, but for baseball fans, we still wish to convey our sadness and remembrances of the small ways that these strangers touched our lives through the television screen and radio speaker.
The rock is thought to have been purposely placed in the spot in hopes it would lead to an accident and allow those who orchestrated the trap to rob the vehicle’s occupants, Mexican newspaper El Universal reported, citing a preliminary report from authorities.
A team official told reporters Friday that Valbuena and Castillo had personal business to attend to and chose to transport themselves separately.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
