The tortured life of Eric Show, Ex Padres pitcher

Really great article written by Tom Friend, about the former Padres pitcher who died of a drug overdose in the mid 90s. Lots of accounts from his family, friends and teammates tell the story of a tortured soul who dealt with abuse from an overbearing father. There are quotes from Flannery and Bochy as well, who were teammates of his. As well as Dravecky, who was really close to him. Kind of a depressing read and a sad, but very interesting story.
