Joe West Ejects Dumb, Stupid Leukemia

If for some reason you haven’t heard, I regret to be the one informing you that FanGraphs’ First and Only Full-Time Employee Dave Cameron has leukemia.

This news makes me, Carson Cistulli, upset. Despite the fact that he looks strange and hasn’t seen a movie since 1987, Dave Cameron is a truly thoughtful man and, if I may say, a dear friend. I believe I speak for everyone on the NotGraphs masthead, when I say that we look forward to Cameron recovering fully.

Joe West has a different approach, though. When he learned this morning about Cameron’s condition, he did the only thing that Joe West really knows how to do: he frigging tossed leukemia.

Though most of us have likely questioned West’s decision-making at one point or another, I think it’s clear that West’s instincts are entirely flawless in this matter.

All of which leads me to this entirely giant and heartfelt message:

Get better, Dave Cameron! You ARE FanGraphs, sir!

  6. If notgraphs ever finds itself thinking, “Man, we should totally bombard this terrific human being with stuff to read, seasons of Kenny Power’s to enjoy, and Audio books to hear-read (or just a big old amazon card)” I’ll happily slip a fifty into it’s garter belt.

    Get better Dave. We’re all thinking of you and pulling for you. I can’t offer much, but in the extremely unlikely event you need something GIFed stat, I’m ready to jump into action.
