The news is not hopeful for Bobby Murcer. Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

this is a terrible development, but he has a vast number of people wishing the best for him, and that can't hurt.

get well, bobby.

In everything I've read, there has been no mention of a prognosis. Very bad. There may be no joy in Mudville in 2007.

WFAN reported that Murcer will begin 6 weeks chemotherapy/radiation treatment very soon.

But brain cancer is NOT an easy one to beat.

(sigh .... my very first "favorite player")

3 Mine too, as we've said before, Diana.

I can't help thinking about Dick Howser when I hear this news.

Very sad today.

More than you would ever want to know on the subject ...

One thing that hasn't been brought to light ... just what TYPE of brain tumor it was ...

(but perhaps its better we NOT know ... keep some things private)

Not just Dick Howser - Dan Quisenberry, Tug McGraw, Johnny Oates. All genuinely great guys.
