Gary Carter Update

So, yeah, I'm a pretty cynical bastard...my string of nonsensical Jeff Conaway tweets should have proven that by now.

But, I'll be honest...the Gary Carter news is kinda hitting me like a ton of bricks.

Saturday it was reveiled that he had four "small" brain tumors and now, today, the New York Daily News is reporting this:

Stricken Mets great Gary Carter has received ominous news from doctors at Duke University, who say that they are "90% certain" that tumors on his brain are malignant, according to a Carter family website.

According to the family's website, doctors have said that even if malignant, the tumors could be treatable.  Carter won't know the official diagnosis until early or the middle of next week, but, man, I think I speak for everyone when I say...this sucks.

I had a chance to talk with "The Kid" last year at this time.  Feel free to read my interview with the Hall of Famer.

Mr.Carter hung on a little too long during his playing days. Let's hope he continues in that same spirit through this fight.
