Ryan Westmoreland seemed like he had the commuter lane to being the next legend of Fenway Park. He's a 5 tool hitter who also happens to be a native New Englander who was destined to be a left handed terror going into the new decade.
But a cavernous malformation of the brain has put that on hold... for the time being.
Now let's all hope that Ryan makes in through fine.
Whether you play another game of baseball or not, I think I speak for all fans when I say get through this Ryan. We're all rooting for you.
(Not for nothing, John Olerud had brain surgery when he was in college and he went on to win a batting title, play 16+ seasons in the bigs, get two World Series rings and have one of the sweetest left handed swings in the game. But first thing is first... get better, man.)
Happy 100th birthday, Red Auerbach
