From the Herald....."David Wells received his third and final Synvisc injection in his right knee Friday, but the synthetic lubricant hasn’t done much to improve his discomfort, according to the team’s medical reports.
“I think he’s had some frustrating days,” manager Terry Francona said of the left-hander, who is on the 15-day disabled list and hasn’t thrown off a mound since his only start April 12." ***Peter here. I wonder how much better he would be feeling right now if he and those same knees, in the same condition, were in San Diego, or elsewhere on the West Coast.
Also from the Herald......"According to Sox media relations ace Peter Chase, Tim Wakefield became only the fourth Red Sox pitcher since 1959 to lose four games in April. Wakefield, who was 1-4 with a 3.90 ERA in five starts, has received only 10 total runs of support, including only two in his past three outings (all defeats)." ***Peter here. It's time tonight to give Tim some run support. He's got his work cut out for him facing the Yankee's slugger's lineup, but he has been tough on the Yankees. Go Tim.
And lastly, from New York's Daily News..." As has been the case the past three years, the Red Sox, like the Yankees, expect to be in a dogfight at the end of the season. Epstein can't help but be pleased that during this adjustment period, the team has remained at the top of the division. But Ortiz is eager to see what the Sox can do when the throttle is turned up.
"We've got a lot of new guys here," Ortiz said. "We haven't seen that intensity very much or a lot. It's going to start kicking in once we start playing the Yankees. You know how those games are." ***Peter again, and we are ready for anything those Pinstripers can give us. Two and done. This time. And the two will go into the victory column. If they don't, it won't be for lack of trying on our part. It's time. PLAY BALL!
