What the hell is wrong with you losers on here that don't even know what an incredible athlete this man was during his prime? How can you wish death upon a man that was nothing but a great pitcher, wonderful family man and a true role model? Do some of you only enjoy people that use their fame to create hate and discontent? No wonder the world is going to hell in a hand basket!

I IDOLIZED him when I was a kid... I sent him a photo and he autographed it, unlike today where you get sent back some promotional horsecrap... He's a fine gentleman... Get well soon, Mr. Ryan!

7 no hitters. The guy was a beast although its been said he was more of a "thrower" than a "pitcher" His post season stats aren't great. Still hall of famer and one of the greatest ever.

Get well NOlan
