Sutcliffe Returning To ESPN Baseball Tonight

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Rick Sutcliffe seems to be well on his way to beating Colon Cancer, which he was diagnosed with this past Spring, and he'll be in the booth for tonight's Braves-Mets game on ESPN. From The Chicago Tribune via SbB....

Sutcliffe returns to the broadcast booth Wednesday for the Atlanta Braves- New York Mets game, his first as an ESPN analyst since being diagnosed with colon cancer during spring training.

"I'll be honest," the former pitcher said Tuesday after stopping by Turner Field, his first visit to a ballpark since his diagnosis. "I'm going to be a little nervous."

The 51-year-old Sutcliffe is on the road to recovery. He was strong enough to undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatments at the same time, speeding up the process, and is hopeful of getting a clean bill of health after surgery on June 16.
Well that's just the best news I've heard in awhile. Not because he beat Cancer (yes that's amazing), but now we won't have to be subjected to another night of Joe Morgan. In all seriousness it's good to have Sutcliffe back and congrats on getting through the treatment.

Now let me follow Brooks' lead and once again revisit Sut drunk telling Matt Vasgersian to leave the Padres. Good times!

I second his motion for Matt VasGERsian to take a hike; the guy's a tool. And I'm sure everyone in "Cowtown" St. Louis would be more than happy to help him move...

Kind of strange that Sutcliffe makes his return tonight after battling colon cancer the same night as Bartolo Colon makes his Red Sox debut.
