Red Sox Woes — Another Man Goes Down

In my life as I baseball fan, I am hard pressed to remember a string of injuries happening to a team with the breadth and speed of the current Red Sox string of injuries. Players on the Red Sox roster are falling apart faster than Tiger Woods’ marriage. The most recent victim is Jason Varitek, who is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a foot injury. That wouldn’t be too big of a deal, except starting catcher Victor Martinez is already waiting for him on the disabled list. The Red Sox have managed to play well despite their injuries thus far, but with the loss of both the starting and backup catcher (not to mention Varitek’s the captain), I’d look for the Red Sox to go on a pretty significant slide. The All-Star break can’t come soon enough.

    let’s not forget about Buchholz.. he went on the DL recently, today maybe. It’s getting ridiculous and all I keep hearing about down here is how the Phillies are banged up.

    p.s. how about Arod making the allstar team over Youk? what kind of joke is that.

    • Bucholz has been on the DL for a while now, and he’s having an All-Star season. No team in baseball is half as banged up as the Sox. It’s not even close. And Youk’s numbers are better than A-Rod’s — but I think everyone knows by now that the All-Star game is largely a popularity contest with fans.
