Rockies OF Gonzalez has tumor removed from finger

‘‘It helps explain some of the things that CarGo’s been dealing with and why that finger kept blowing up on him,’’ Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. ‘‘It helps answer some of the questions we had about him.

I can only imagine how Michael Douglas thinks you get this type of cancer.

It was a 'fatty mass with tentacles.' If tentacles was slightly misspelled and singular, that could describe John Kruk.

Sounds like a lipoma. I had one the size of a golf ball removed from my back in 2004. It had been resting against my spine and causing some discomfort.

The doctor removed it and my back felt the best it had in years before I'd even left the hospital room.

Update: CarGo said it looked like a cheetoh, or maybe a shrimp:

Thomas Harding ?@harding_at_mlb Jun 11

@harding_at_mlb He said at first it "looked like a Chee-to, because I eat too many Chee-tos." Also, maybe a shrimp. "Something creepy."
