Just a quick  note to send out good wishes, positive vibes and prayers to Dave Roberts.

I try not to dedicate posts to something everyone else will be blogging about but I think giving a shout out to Dave who, today, publicly revealed that he’s been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma since mid-March, is worth a few repeat entries.

Roberts was diagnosed in mid-March and he says the cancer was detected early. He says the prognosis is “good.” He has undergone two rounds of chemotherapy so far.

No one will ever point to just one player and say “HE’S the reason we won” but we come damn close with Dave Roberts and his steal in game 4 of the 2004 ALCS.  Without that steal, who knows how things would have worked out?  He gave a lot to us and I feel compelled to give a little back right now.

If you’re the praying kind, it would be nice if you could throw a few prayers Dave’s way.  Positive vibes are always welcome too.

God speed, Dave and here’s to a full recovery.
