Research is the key in The Game Of All Games (http://www.stiffs.com/enter/), and information is precious. Therefore, DO NOT blurt out anything you may have heard about a celebrity's health, or even the fact that a famous person is really old, UNLESS that info has appeared on stiffs.com's SickTicker, OR, you have seen or heard it yourself on CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox, AND the Drudge Report. When in doubt, shut the fuck up.

Please also refrain from making public the names of any write-in candidates that have not yet been approved by the Fame Committee. If you don't know what the Fame Committee is, see this immediately.

Be aware, too, that this forum is NOT the place to promote your own shitty dead pool.

Report: Ross Powell, former Cincinnati Reds pitcher, dies from carbon monoxide poisoning

Dave Clark, dclark@cincinnati.com

Ross Powell, who pitched for the Cincinnati Reds in 1993 after the team drafted him in the third round of the 1989 MLB Draft, died of carbon monoxide poisoning, according to a report by CBS 11's Brooke Rogers, and the 49-year-old's body was found along with that of his 72-year-old father, Lyle, in a lawn care van in Texas.

More from Rogers' report:

Ross Powell had just opened his lawn care franchise, Lawn Doctor of McKinney/Allen, last month. Family members say he was extremely close to his father, Lyle, who was in the van with him yesterday.

Investigators are now trying to determine the source of the fumes in the lawn care van.


Powell appeared in nine games for the Reds in 1993, striking out 17 in 16 1/3 innings. The Reds traded Powell to the Houston Astros in April of 1994 with Marty Lister for catcher Eddie Taubensee.

Powell pitched for Houston in 1994 and 1995, and Pittsburgh in 1995.
