    It seems like the worst crap happens to the least deserving people.

    Best wishes to him for a full and complete recovery. That's a shame-sad to hear. Good luck Joe:rocker:

    Re: Joe Andruzzi has cancer

    The problems he had one year in the offseason with the mystery 'virus' sound exactly like a pre-cursor to this type thing. The immune system can cause you a lot of pain and can attack your body.

    He is a fighter so if anyone can beat this, he can.

    Good thing he finally knows what it is, and more importantly, his doctors now know what the deal is. That is a big first step, after having 'mystery' symptoms in the past.

    Re: Joe Andruzzi has cancer

    Isn't it the same thing Lester had? Didin't he have some back pain that turned out to be related to the cancer, and didn't Andruzzi have mysterious back pain too? I wonder if that was somehow related to the cancer as well, though it seemed pretty long term.

    Damn! That sucks. I wish Andruzzi all the best. The guy played with a lot of heart and guts which helped him overcome what he lacked in talent. I hope that that heart and determination is put to good use battling cancer.

    Get well Joe, I met him at a party back at SCSU many years ago. A cool, very "mellow" guy.

    Wow, get well soon. Joe always seemed like a great guy, and i was sad to see him go. I still remember the first game after 9/11 when his brothers (FDNY) came to the game. On the bright side he couldn't be at a better place for treatment

    Re: Joe Andruzzi has cancer

    On August 27th, 2006 Lester was scratched from his scheduled start against the Oakland Athletics due to a sore back. The following day he was placed on the 15 day disabled list (retroactive to August 24th, 2006), and was sent back to Boston for testing. At the time, Lester's back problems were thought to be the result of a car crash he was involved in on August 18th, 2006. On August 31st it was reported that Lester had been diagnosed with enlarged lymph nodes and was being tested for a variety of ailments, including forms of cancer [3]. On September 1st, doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital confirmed that Lester has a treatable form of anaplastic large cell lymphoma [1].http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Lester#Battle_with_lymphoma

    My best wishes go out to Andruzzi and his family. This definitely explains why he didn't play as well as we know he could have in Cleveland.

    It returned in 1989 and I again had to receive chemo,

    radiation as well as an autologous bone-marrow transplant,

    18 yrs later.....still here :rocker:

    Hang tough, Joe. We're all behind you and are rooting for you every step of the way.

    Beat the crap out of it and stomp all over it when it's down.
