  • Mercer to have a biopsy

    Here is an article on Bobby Mercer who will undergo a biopsy early next week to determine if the cancer he has been battling for more than a year has returned.

    I hope everything is OK with him. I'll burn a :candle: for him.

    This is horrible news.

    I should probably post this in the 'Your favorite player as a kid' thread, because he was. I admit this even at the risk of being shunned by my fellow Flushing faithfull.

    I wore number 1 always as a kid, even when he returned to the Yankees and had to settle for # 2, I stuck with 1. When the Cubs would come to town I went to every game possible. It was the best of both worlds for me, I was at Shea, which I loved more than anywhere in the world, watching my team, and I got to see my favorite player of all time.

    Murcer's game the nite of Munson's funeral was one of the only 2 moments in NY sports history, imo, that transended sport and made you relise baseball is just a part of more important things, but a special part. ( the other is the post 9/11 Piazza game)

    He's been a terrific announcer all these years, easy to listen to, no arrogance, sense of humor, knowledge of the game, good stories. I'm sure everybody who is a NY baseball fan will remember him in their prayers.

      You have my HOF vote and good luck in the future now that you have retired. Thanks for the wins you gave the Yanks from 2001-2008. Have an enjoyable retirement.
