Bowden Treated For Skin Cancer

The Nats GM learned he had skin cancer in June, but he elected to delay treatment until the end of the season -- a decision he now regrets. The good news is, doctors believe they've removed all cancerous growth.

Dedication is commendable, but long term health is more important than work. Thanks for the effort, but don't do that again.

Carrying forward: I wish Jim the best with his recovery. Waiting to have the surgery was not a good idea, as he notes. Also, in addition to hats, sunscreen is important.

What was he thinking??

Uh...WTF? I know that this was the height of the season and all, but it is CANCER! I am glad to hear that there were clear margins, but what does this say about his judgment on less important topics?

Also carrying forward ... Best wishes to Jim for a complete recovery.

Best wishes for your recovery, Jim. As odd as it might sound given the narrative that has been established, please put yourself first sometimes.

All the best to Bowden in his recovery.

Hasn't that woman been his fiance for over 4 years now?

JimBow a/k/a Trader Jim - May I join in the prayers and best wishes of all here for your complete recovery? There's no sense going back and dwelling on what happened last summer. "Always look forward like a runner running a race, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before. . . Rejoice. . .Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are good, if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these. . . and peace be with you." Phillipans, 3,4.

Jim B.,

You are in the thoughts and prayers of many Nats fans, even those of us who now wish we had been a tad more restrained in our criticisms.

Get well and back in the swing; no shots from me until at least the second home stand. But get well!

Wanted to say, Jim Bowden, I hope we can kick you around for decades to come. Get better!

Well, I guess I'm not as charitable as the majority here. Bowden continues to demonstrate that his private life is a train wreck. And that reflects on upper management's judgment as well.
