ESPN.com’s Paul Lukas caused a bit of controversy with an article in which he contemplated the merits of a memorial jersey patch for the late Oscar Taveras.
Taveras, a rising MLB star and the likely future cornerstone of the Cardinals going forward was killed, along with his 18-year-old girlfriend, in a car crash in the Dominican Republic in late October shortly after the season ended. Taveras was drunk – more than five times the legal limit – at the time of the crash.
Because of this, some question whether the Cardinals should honor and remember him with a patch on their jerseys this upcoming season. ESPN Evansville asked me to come on and talk about this issue. You can listen to the full interview below.
