Sad day for baseball and the Blue Jays.  Former scout Epy Guerrero has passed.  Guerrero, of course, recruited a number of the franchise's greatest players.  In scouting circles he was nothing short of a legend.  In fact, it is hard to find a scout that rivaled his eye for talent and ability to get kids to sign on the dotted line.  His work in Latin America paved the way for many to play in the Big Leagues and the strong reputation the Jays still hold in Latin America is largely his responsibility.  Sad day indeed.  Epy will be missed.
