Nuxie and Dunn
Just spoke to Joe Nuxhall. He begins chemo Monday for his fourth bout with lymphoma.
He's upbeat, as always.
"Yeah, I get another shot of it," he said. "I was all geared up becasue I thought we had it whipped. What are you going to do?"
Nuxhall will make his book-signing appearance Sunday at the Reds Hall of Fame.
"You can't sit around and feel sorry for yourself," he said.
He is one tough cookie. I've dealt cancer personally and with members of my family. I've never seen take it on with such optimism and complete lack of self pity.
Also saw Adam Dunn. He's off crutches.
"I could take them," he said.
The knee was worse than expected. Dunn's not a fan of surgery.
"My first and last," he said. "It's terrible. I don't know how people go through it."
