Thoughts on Gary Carter

We may not always be rooting for the same team; Nevertheless, this is something I believe we can all agree on.

Our thoughts are with Gary Carter.

Today, Baseball Hall of Famer and Mets Great, Gary Carter was reported to have Stage 4 Brain Cancer. Unfortunately, a scary diagnosis not much different than that, which took the life of Mets Great, Tug McGraw.

According to published reports, Carter’s tumors are inoperable. A great disappointment, especially when bestowed upon a man who is the physical embodiment of optimism.  As Ron Darling said during tonight’s Mets Broadcast, “[Carter] never wanted to make the last out.”

The 57-year-old Carter is expected to learn about his options (however few) at Duke University’s Cancer Institute treatment center tomorrow.

This is truly a sad day.  Carter is one of the true ambassadors of the game and an overall good person.  Here’s hoping that Darling is right.  Carter deserves a couple of extra innings to keep fighting.
