The Uninjured Minority Played A Game Last Night

Amongst the injury news, the latest additions being Jon Lester (see previous posts), Curt Schilling (tightness near his shoulder-no start Monday), and Jonathon Papelbon (shoulder tightness-day to day....OR HE'S DONE FOR THE SEASON...we do not know), the healthy ones played a game last night, and played well. The Red Sox won 2-1, with Kyle Snyder playing the role of pitching ace perfectly. His 7 shutout innings were just what the doctor ordered. On second thought, we're keeping the doctors busy enough without mentioning them any more than necessary. Mike Lowell's second home run in as many games put the Sox up 1-0, a lead they hung onto until the ninth, when a wayward Papelbon throw allowed a run in. And after 11 pitches, he was gone, departing after he felt a searing pain in the front of his shoulder, a pain that he said was plain old "scary." For all of us.
Saturday baseball to come....a game that has been moved up to a 1:05 start because of weather concerns. Oh, and I've never seen a stretch with this many injuries all at once.We go on, battered, bruised, but never giving up.

A Saturday afternoon start? On a cool, overcast day?

Sort of suits the mood of Red Sox Nation perfectly.

Great title--and all of it is so true...

This has been a heck of a season, and it makes me crazy when I heard Yankee fans go on about how "our players were injured too!"

Go Sox!

They (the Yankees) did have early injuries, lingering ones, to key players. But nothing of the scope of what we're going through. I can't remember a string of heartbreaking and "shaken to the core" injuries such as we're experiencing right now. But we go on, in life and all else. RSN is battered and bruised, but not down and out. Take care!
