De mortuis nihil nisi bonum
José D. Fernández was a talented pitcher for Miami. His death in a boating accident brought many laudatory stories about his talent, spirit, and personality.
It seems that he was just another drunk when he died though, crashing his boat and killing 2 friends while intoxicated on alcohol and cocaine. (It's not clear that he was piloting his boat, but he was the only one who was legally drunk. One of his friends also had cocaine in his body.)
Oh, well. Nobody's perfect.
