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."

Yup. 

Ted Lilly was available to fortify a rotation, weakened by Pettitte's stint on the DL. Yeah.  The Cubs gave him a way for a bucket of chicken and a box of burned-out light bulbs.
