Rheal Cormier passed away yesterday after a long bout with cancer.
A lot of the links for the Phillies will be dedicated to Cormier because, by all accounts, he was one of the good ones. Many of the former teammates that tweeted out condolences yesterday kept coming back to the same general theme of how good a person he was as well as how good a teammate he was. So, with that in mind, we dedicate today’s links to a Cormier and to his memory.
Rest in peace, Rheal.
