I can barely function when I'm hungover lord knows how I'd be if I ever went through a brain biopsy like Bobby Murcer did last September. Well the longtime YES announcer will back in the booth tonight since undergoing the procedure and while there's a little weakness in the announcer he's raring to go.....
"Any time I can walk these halls and be in this place here and talk about baseball, it's right up my alley," Murcer said outside of the Yankees' clubhouse.Well thank god for that, and hopefully getting back into the booth well help him heal that much faster. Glad to have you back Bobby.
The popular former Yankees outfielder, who will turn 62 on May 20, underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor in December 2006. There was a concern that he had a recurrence of the cancer. But the latest biopsy came back cancer free. It showed necrosis - dead tissue. Still, these haven't been an easy few months for him.
"This year has been a little different year," Murcer said. "I haven't been as strong this year. That's why I didn't make it to Opening Day. I had a biopsy about a month before that. It took me a lot longer to recover from that. But there's still no cancer.
