Robert Fick has the reputation of being a funny guy in the clubhouse, a great quote in a pinch.  Fick should make the Nationals Opening Day roster as a utilityman (1B OF and C) and left-handed pinch hitter.

While Fick goes through the rigors of spring training, his heart is someplace else.

Sunday’s Washington Post featured a great article about Fick and his difficult offseason.

Fick’s mother, Gloria, is 75 years old and has lung cancer. She does not want to chemo or any surgery.  Gloria Fick was told a year ago she had two months to live.

The sad quote in the story is when Fick recalled leaving from Southern California to Florida

“I’m probably never going to see my mom again,” Fick told the Post. “She’s probably going to die.”

If this doesn’t make you feel for the guy, I don’t know what will.
