Nationals fan's obituary roasts bullpen for blowing 'yet another lead'

The Washington Nationals' bullpen woes have hampered the team all season, and one fan rubbed some salt in the wound with a tongue-in-cheek parting message.

An obituary from Patrick Killebrew, 68, singled out Washington's relief struggles as the final act he witnessed, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

It reads as follows:

KILLEBREW, Patrick, "Pat," age 68, passed away peacefully at home, June 20, 2017, after watching the Washington Nationals relief pitchers blow yet another lead. Beloved father and husband, longtime attorney, former U.S. Navy Navigator and avid baseball fan and player. Join in a celebration of his life July 2, 6 to 8 p.m., at the SCA Clubhouse, 9601 Redbridge Rd., 23236. In lieu of flowers, send "donations" to the "Nationals Bullpen Fund."

The obituary ends by encouraging people to send their donations to the Nationals Bullpen Fund - a nice touch.

Since the start of the season, the club has shuffled its bullpen multiple times with several closers failing to perform. Entering Sunday, Nationals' relievers had combined for the league's fifth-worst FIP (4.76), second-highest HR/9 (1.56), and 12 blown saves.
