"Peter, his family and his doctors are very pleased with the progress that Peter has made following surgical repair of a brain aneurysm," she said in the statement released by the hospital. "We all want to thank you for the positive thoughts and good wishes that have been sent Peter's way. We also appreciate your understanding and respect for our privacy at this time."

Best of luck to you, Peter. As much as I and some other people rip on you, it just wouldn't be the same without you reporting on the Red Sox and Yankees.

Home Run Derby night wasn't the same without Peter keeping Berman in check. I really hope we see him back at the ballpark real soon though I suspect he won't be traveling as much for awhile.

Despite his bias, I like him and certainly can't wait until he's back broadcasting.

I've got a dvd of the ESPN postgame wrap they did from the outfield in Houston after the clincher. He may be a Red Sox fan at heart, but that didn't prevent him from gushing over the White Sox like I've never seen any media guy/gal from Chicago gush. He ranked the '05 team as one of the greatest of all time, right up there with the '75 Reds and the '98 Yankees...and going back to the '27 Yankees. He spent five minutes going over the stats from the 2005 season and talking about what an unbelievable accomplishment this team made. I'll always appreciate him for that. It was completely honest and refreshing.

Good news Indeed..hopefully the damage done to his health can be somewhat reversed...agreed that watching Baseball Tonight is not the same even with his East Coast Bias--Get well soon Peter!

It was completely honest and refreshing.That was great stuff. No Chicago reporter ever came close to that enthusiasm for and appreciation of the Right Sox. At that point I realized how much Gammons loved baseball. He may be a Wrong Sox follower, but he's a HUGE baseball fan and a good guy. :smile:

One night last summer I was in a group at Fenway talking with Peter and he said in passing how much he wished his college roomate was alive so he could needle him about the White Sox having such a great year. His roommate at UNC was Jeff MacNelly the creator of Shoe. ( who bled Cubbie blue )

WEEI did something nice for Peter and I hope he was able to see it on TV to brighten his spirits
