Seems like it either means a DL trip, or playing slightly below par for the rest of the year, which will hurt his BA, baserunning and defense, though he should still have the power.

Depending how bad the tear is...he could keep playing and be uncomfortable or in pain.... Or he can have surgery. My senior year I tore mine, but didn't tell anyone cause we were in the playoffs. Year later, Doctor found it during a physical and told me I should have had it operated on. The first year I had problems walking up and down stairs, my leg would give out, etc.

My gut, he plays through it, with a few more days off, and possibly some DH stints.

Should he really get credit for either of those when he isn't hurt? ;)

Not to jump out at you, but I'm sick of Manny being made fun of for his bad fielding. He's really not that bad. He's made some bonehead plays, and there's the occasional mental lapse where he doesn't even see a fly ball or something, but for all those plays he makes, he makes one where he slides into the wall down the foul line, or guns a guy down at 2nd. He plays the green monster like no one else I've ever seen, and deserves much more credit than he is given.

Would BOS ever consider switching up the lineup?

Manny at DH, Papi at 1B & Youklis in the OF somewhere?

They wouldn't do that on a regular basis. I could see it happening a few time over the rest of the year, but not too often. Plus, usually when Francona does something to the lineup to give someone rest, he benches all the good players on the same day so that we have no chance of winning, and Manny as DH, Papi at 1B, and Youk in the OF is too logical.
