Jon Lester

I was going to write a really pithy post about the Red Sox and their ever-growing list of injured players, but last night, NESN reported that John Lester, the 22 year-old pitcher, was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

He’s got great doctors and it’s supposed to be a very treatable form of cancer, but it’s still cancer. And he’s his parents’ only child. And just starting his baseball career. And only 22 years old.

Here’s to hoping the doctors can get rid of it and that he recovers completely and that it never, ever comes back again. If we see him at spring training next year, even better.
