If you were a Giants fan in the '80's you'll remember chanting UUUUUU - Ribe, UUUUUUU Ribe when Jose would come to bat. He was always smiling, always positive (at least in my recollection).
I'm very saddened at the loss.
Jose, thank you for many, many great memories. Those of us "Stick" dwellers will miss you.
Jose's son Juan is now playing for the Chicago White Sox. My well wishes to the entire Uribe family.
