This was the first Yordano Ventura card I ever owned.
The "Rated Rookie" badge then served to notify me of his great potential, yet unrealized.
Since then, he showed us flashes, but I think it is safe to say that all that potential remains unrealized still.
Before they laid him in the ground today, Salvador Perez eulogized him, saying, "I regret the loss of our brother Ventura. Only God knows why he does these things. I love you. And on behalf of the Kansas City Royals, I wish for all of you strength.”
