Here's a disgusting reminder of the creatures who prowl even the corridors of grief in this world:

A Jose Fernandez No. 16 jersey from his days at Alonso High was reportedly stolen while the school held a candlelight vigil on the baseball field for the late Ravens and Miami Marlins pitching star on Wednesday night.

Hundreds showed up for the vigil. Apparently one of them was a thief. Crime marches on.

Jose Fernandez was laid to rest Thursday in Miami.

His jersey was placed in the Alonso home dugout during Wednesday's ceremony. Alonso baseball coach Landy Faedo didn't want it to get wet from the rain.

Really? At a candlelight vigil for the kid?

Sometimes I just want to hit something.

Guess I'll say another prayer for Jose instead.
