    I don't mean to invade anyone's privacy, but I wanted to let people know that longtime baseball writer Dick Kaegel is not well.

    I do this only so his many friends can send prayers, good thoughts and whatever else might help in his direction.

    Dick has been around forever and his current affiliation is with mlb.com in Kansas City.

    Very sad. I hope he gets well soon.

    Thoughts and prayers are with Dick and Betty. They are great people to say the very least.

    (This is Dick's 50th year in sports writing, by the way. He started during his junior year of high school at his hometown paper and took it from there.)

    I don't mean this to sound callous or nosy, but what is wrong with Dick? He and I used to be good friends when he was at TSN, but kind of lost contact with each other once he went over to MLB.com. I asked someone about him, oh, probably about a year ago, I guess, and that was the last I heard about him. Whatever it is, I hope he pulls through. He's one of the best people I know in the biz.
