A contusion (bruise) is an injury to the soft tissue often produced by a blunt force such as a kick, fall, or blow. The result will be pain, swelling, and discoloration. Treatment for contusions includes Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (R.I.C.E.).

That's such bullcrap. Warning both teams after one hitter essentially says that if you're going to hit someone, make sure you're the first team to do it. I'd imagine Manny or Ortiz will get thrown at when the series comes to Anaheim.

I seriously hope he's ok- great news that its not broken. That would have been catastrophic. I expect him back in a few days.

It looks like you think Beckett threw at Vlad on purpose. You could not be more wrong. Beckett is very agressive and will throw inside frequently, especially with 2 strikes on a batter. Going inside in normal conditions means pinpoint accuracy. The weather in Boston was cold and wet today which most definately made grip a factor. Plus, why would he throw at a star player for no reason when he has David and Manny to risk.

That being said, warning both benches after three batters was crazy. I know they do it to avoid retaliation, but players and managers are much smarter and know more about the game than we do. There is no doubt that they knew it was not intentional. It was unfortunate but not intentional.

Hmmm, I hope Colon faces the Red Sox sometime and shows Papi and Manny a piece of his rusty arse 96mph fastball. If he does been them, just shrug his shoulders, and say "No speak English."

Of course, I don't want any players to get injured.O:-)

By the way this is coming from a Yankee fan and a proud Vlad owner. I'm biased.
