"

In a luncheon meeting with the Baseball Writers Association prior to the All-Star Game, [MLBPA Executive Director Michael] Weiner began his address by detailing his deteriorating condition and announcing that the union was already in the process of appointing a new deputy executive director and then outlined briefly the status of the Biogenesis investigation.

After he was finished, he quipped: ‘Any questions not related to Biogenesis or brain cancer?’

… Weiner was asked what kept him going; how he was able to put it all in perspective.

'We don’t know how much time I have,' he said. 'I don’t know if I look at things different. Maybe they just become more important to me consciously going forward. I don’t take any day for granted. I don’t take the next morning for granted. I look for beauty, meaning and joy. If I find beauty, meaning and joy, that’s a good day.'
