The Mets announced that general manager Sandy Alderson has been diagnosed with a treatable form of cancer (via Newsday’s Marc Carig). Alderson will undergo eight to 12 weeks of chemotherapy and miss the upcoming Winter Meetings, according to the club. ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin tweets that he will continue his duties as GM of the team, however.
Mack - WTF? I wonder if his 'fainting' at an earlier press conference had anything to do with this.
Treatable or not, an immediate diagnosis for chemotherapy is usually not a good sign.
