Good Morning America host Robin Roberts told viewers in an emotional announcement this morning that she has the rare disorder myelodysplastic syndromes. She will soon get a bone marrow transplant from her older sister. It's probably fair to say that many people probably haven't heard of the disease that also goes by MDS. MDS is actually a group of disorders that cause the bone marrow to produce an inadequate number of healthy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Tommy Hunter has allowed 32 homers this season - that's a whole lot. How much? It borders on historic, actually. Hunter is now in a five-way tie for 10th place all-time among Orioles for most homers allowed in a season. He is just four shy of breaking the club record of 35 - shared by Robin Roberts (1963), Scott McGregor (1986), Sidney Ponson (1999) and Jeremy Guthrie (2009).  All four of those pitchers, however, threw at least 200 innings; Roberts threw 251 1/3 in 1963.

NEW YORK -- Diane Sawyer had an 80 percent "favorable" rating. Star Jones Reynolds, meanwhile, had one of the lowest ratings. Sawyer is America's favorite news or talk personality, according to a Gallup Poll released Tuesday. Eighty percent of the respondents rated Sawyer "favorable," while only 11 percent labeled her "unfavorable." Sawyer's tally puts her ahead of her colleague and former Good Morning America co-host Charlie Gibson, who slides in at No. 2, followed by NBC's Matt Lauer and Dan Rather (who doesn't even have a job in network news anymore)

Though he pitched for the Orioles in the twilight of his Hall of Fame career, Robin Roberts was remembered by teammates Thursday as an accomplished right-hander whose savvy and work ethic helped shape the young staff that would one day carry Baltimore to two World Series championships. Roberts, born in 1926 on a farm outside Springfield, Ill., died Thursday of natural causes at his home in Temple Terrace, Fla. He was 83. Long a star with the Philadelphia Phillies, whom he led to a National League pennant in 1950, Roberts won 20 or more games in six straight seasons during his heyday.

What was the expected became the unexpected. Jack Brandt was an original unto himself. In the long and eventful history of Baltimore baseball, there was never a more entertaining individual. It was the personality in all its bizarre aspects.His natural, God-given ability frustrated managers and created professional envy among players. The maximum performance never truly exhibited itself, but he was to spend 11 seasons in the major leagues.All the necessary ingredients were there -- exceptional throwing, fielding, running, hitting and the power quotient.

The underlying medical condition that contributed to the death of writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron and is forcing ABC news anchor Robin Roberts to get a bone marrow transplant is a rare and complicated disease that scientists are still trying to figure out. Both women were afflicted with myelodysplastic syndrome, a group of disorders caused when the body produces damaged blood cells. Abnormal cells can eventually outnumber good cells, leaving people with low blood cell counts and needing transfusions and other treatments.

"Good Morning America"  co-host George Stephanopoulos used the adjective "staggering" to describe the response to his on-air partner Robin Roberts' announcement this week that she has a blood disease and needs a bone marrow transplant. In the 24 hours since that announcement on GMA, the number of bone marrow donors rose more than 1,000 percent, ABC News reports. This is a story milllions of viewers will follow closely, and one takeaway from the response this week is a reminder of how deeply many of us come to care about the people we see day in and day out on TV. This seems to be especially true in morning television where there is an ongoing conversation between the hosts and their audience with personal aspects of the TV performers' lives shared.
