Gammons Suffers aneurysm

Our thoughts are with Peter Gammons, the legendary Boston Globe baseball writer and current ESPN analyst who suffered an aneurysm in his brain earlier this morning and is undergoing surgery in a Boston-area hospital.

Bob Ryan has a report on his former colleague, and ESPN.com also has the news.

Again, our thoughts are with Mr. Gammons, who means so much to baseball and the local media and fans here in Boston.

I don’t think D&C are unlikeable. They’re passionate and sometimes their comments and opinions can be perceived as negative. But they are incredibly smart, well prepared and far more knowledgeable about sports than Toucher and Rich. That’s why they’re as successful as they are. Toucher and Rich are talented radio guys and they have a following, but if you want sports, D&C are the choice.
