Gary Carter's health worsens

Unfortunately, the news keeps getting worse when it comes to the cancerous tumors in Hall of Famer Gary Carter's brain. The most recent news is "extremely grave," per the New York Daily News. Carter fell violently enough on Christmas Day to tear his rotator cuff and the most recent MRI has revealed even more spots and tumors, according to Carter's daughter (on their family website).

What's worse, Carter doesn't sound like he's optimistic at all.

"I'm not feeling too good," he told New York Daily News a few weeks ago. "It's been coming on and coming on. I've had a chest cold. I've got sores in my mouth, blood clots. I get sick ... there's just so many things ... It's been nine months now and I don't feel any different from Day One. I haven't been up to doing any interviews."

Finally, the worst news of all is that the Daily News is reporting that doctors are considering no further treatment.

Gary Carter's health worsens

Thank you Gary for being apart of my life in baseball as I know it.  You have shown me how to be tenacious in everything about sports and also in my everyday life. You truly our my hero and a Hall of fame legend. Your most memorable moment in baseball for me was the tag you made at the plate in that earlty 80's allstar game that was on a ball that was  RIFLED TO YOU BY DAVE PARKER that went on to end the game and seal the win for the national league at a time when the NL used to own the AL.  Im am a die hard met fan and will never forget all the memories you gave us during your time here in new york.Thank you for being the last piece to the making of the only championship I KNOW AS A MET FAN. Hang on and be strong as only you can.

Baseball fans that appreciate hard work, true passion, and doing things the right way on and off the field would have LOVED Gary Carter.  He never wanted the limelight.  He wanted to play ball.  And he did it very well.  Though I feel he never got his due, he was dearly loved by his fans.  He did it all with a smile on his face.  God bless you Gary.  Baseball needs more people like you!

I'm a lifelong Mets fan who actually saw the Mets play in'69 when I was 6.  Once a Mets fan, always a Mets fan.  I'm so sorry to hear of "Kids'" condition.  My thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family, his friends, and former teammates.  He will live forever with the '86 Mets and I hope that brings some comfort to him and his family.  I hope and pray for a miracle.  Keep up hope Carter family.  My prayers are with you.

When I was growing up, Gary Carter was one of my favorite players to watch.  Darn good player.  I hate to hear this latest news, though.  Very sad day.
