"The entire Oakland's A's organization sends our thoughts out to Joe's family," said Oakland assistant general manager David Forst. "He was a valued member of our organization for almost two years, and certainly a guy we loved having around.''This is really tragic and shocking news, especially given the timing. As mentioned above, there's no official cause given yet, though some sources are indicating it may have been a brain aneurysm. Anyways, keep his family, including his wife and young son, in mind today. Condolences go out to them and all of Kennedy's family. RIP, Joe.
