Sure, he wasn't super fantastic as a commentator, but not everyone is cut out for that line of work. By all accounts, Dave Roberts is a great guy, and it makes me sad that cancer strikes good people. Just another reason to donate to the Jimmy Fund when the time comes around.
I was trying to put together a play on words, saying something like he can steal a clean bill of health the way he stole second, but I think I'll just quote Tito on this instead...
"I expect Dave can probably outrun anything," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said before Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels. "I know we've got a lot of people pulling for him here. He probably knows that - everywhere he's been."
Prayers and all the positive energy in the world to Dave Roberts right now. Let's hope he recovers from this quickly and can get back to normal. We're all cheering for you, Dave.
