    That sucks.

    One of the greats on a great Expo team that should have won the World Series.

    Here's hoping for a full recovery!

    Carter always had so much enthusiasm when he played. Some resented it, but that was the way he was. Carter was a clutch hitter and great defensive catcher.

    I wish him the best

    I never understood why Gary Carter got such a bad rap. He gave his all while he was playing, helped his community and never did anything to hurt the game

    Yet he was criticized by players and fans for his enthusiasm and zeal for the game
