I mean Holy Hell, Ortiz down with irregular heartbeat; Lester having syptoms of cancer; Varitek down; Nixon down; Wakefield down; Clement down; Manny not 100%; Wily Mo with wrist problems; Alex Gonzo another on DL. I have never seen that many players on one team out. How can u bounce back from this!
They can't bounce back from this, it would be a bigger miracle than coming back from 3-0 in '04.
And Coco Crisp is now day to day with a bruised shoulder after making a great diving catch a couple nights ago.
Good news for the PawSox though, Varitek, Nixon, and Gonzales will all play for them this weekend and WilyMo is supposed to be back in a couple days. The Manny and Papi questions should be figured out by the end of the weekend, question is how much is either going to play the rest of the season even if they're cleared?
Won't be any chances taken with either.
So help's on the way, only God knows if they have anyone they can actually bring up for the expanded September roster, but the bottom line is they need to win like 25 out of their last 29 to have a postseason shot - that's if the Yanks and/or the Wrong Sox play .500 ball.
Just ain't in the cards...
