    There's a story in the Post, I'm too lazy to link right now. My guess is Nationals.com has it, too. Skin cancer, delayed surgery until after the season.
    I don't much like him as a GM but that's not the point here. I hope he makes a complete recovery. I wouldn't wish that evil shit on my worst enemy.

    Here's the Post. I was wrong about Nationals.com. Nothing there.

    I've often wanted to try to bash some sense into Bowden's skull.

    But with this situation, I would have drawn from my own experience with testicular cancer. I sat on mine for over a year. I was EXTREMELY lucky it didn't spread. He must remain constantly vigilant lest the cancer metastasize further.

    I'm not a huge fan of Bowden's, but like Moddy, I wouldn't wish this shit on anyone.

    This is not funny but you did have a funny line in there. Sat on yours? I needed to laugh (not because of this, because of a bunch of other shit).

    I understand. Sometimes it's cool to be unintentionally funny.

    Laughter helps, even in shitty situations.

    When he was diagnosed in June, doctors recommended surgery within the month but he waited until the end of the season, wondering the entire time whether the cancer was spreading. Really, really foolish decision.

    Bad choice to wait on skin cancer. Very bad.

    He was given the gift of early detection and squandered it. What an idiot. That said, here's for a speedy recovery.

    I hope he is better at selecting oncologists than starting pitchers.
