Varitek possibly headed to the DL

Recommended Posts

Jul 31 Boston Red Sox C Jason Varitek (knee) left the game Monday, July 31, after suffering a sprained left knee. He will undergo an MRI tomorrow, but this sounds like a disabled list trip is possible.

No report has been made as of yet if Doug Mirabelli was transported to the game via helicopter.

Plus Nixon and Wells still looks hurt. Man how can they deal with all those injuries. They just keep battling. It is a gritty bunch, lol.

whats he hitting, .190?

this is a blessing for the sawx

Not really. Considering what we have behind him, it's a real hit. Pena replacing Nixon is about equal, all things considered, but we cannot afford to lose Tek for an extended period of time.

Oh the injuries keep on mounting. I mean, this is not the team we were expected to play with. 3/5ths of the rotation out. Manny with a bum knee. Coco has not been right since fracturing his hand. Now, Trot is on the DL also.

The Red Sox are the inspirational story of the year. They have managed to overcome more injuries then any two teams combined and are still in first place. all the while holding off the 200 million dollar beast.

Wouldn't that be the

200 million beast

less Matsui (13 Milll)

less Sheff (13 Milll)

So, we're the 174 Million beast......maybe, just maybe Sawx management should spend some of all that $$$$$ generated from all those sellouts, rather than have Thea giving you a BS press conference about we're holding the fort until 07-08

GUess what......you'll still have the Yanks to beat in 07-08-----it's never easy to be a 2nd rate franchise. I feel fo you Sawx fans:eek:

Back to the topic on hand. Losing Varitek is a Major loss, as in spite of his average, he still has power potential every time he steps up at the plate. He also is the leader of the team. Losing him for a length of time will hurt at least somewhat.

All good points and how he handles the pitching staff needs to be brought up also. Of all the injuries, this is the one that is hardest to overcome, Doug Mirabelli and his porn look notwithstanding.

Theo said before the season the Sox were not going to be big spenders this year. He wanted to see where all the new and/or young players fit in before doing and major renovations. This was to be a rebuilding year. Given the contributions given by Papelborn and to a lesser extent Lester, DeClareman, Hanson and WIly MO, I am glad he did not do what the old Sox FO would have done. Traded one or more of them for a player that while an immediate impact might be nice, long range would be negative.

As a Yankee fan, I'm glad you feel that way....that's why we are a pretty successful franchise

Nothing is promised in the future...ie in life, baseball, whatever...the reality is the Sawx not mortgaging the future is nice, the reality is that for now, you are in 1st place (not for long) It sends a message to the fans of the franchise that the FO is not committed to winning RIGHT NOW. When the team is in fact in a position to win RIGHT NOW

Not making a move sends a message to Sawx fans everywhere......it sends a message that you're happy to be a wildcard team ( I saw Thea's presser yesterday, and that is what he insinuated) and hopefully in the future, if no one gets injured, we'll make a run then also

You know what.....fans want to win now. And it's a nice spin to say otherwise. It's an excuse, it's Thea's way

Ham is the only on allowed to cry about injuries and he's quite good at it.

Funny how he's back posting juggernaut line-up threads once again after calling the season over b4 June 1st for the second year in a row.

As fair weather a fan as they come.

You know something, I'm all about winning now. Next year, I'd be about winning now and the year after that, yup, winning now. Spend, spend, spend, I say. Serioulsy, do you have any idea what stuff costs at Fenway? The ad money is ridiculous. Screw that - I want a competitor that has a chance to win each and every year. As a fan, I deserve that committment.

Except, if the Sox lose Papi and Manny for a while, we don't have A-Rod, Giambi, Jeter, and Damon (or anyone like those) still to pick up the slack.

That's what $200 million buys you.

A win this year is as important as a win 1,2,3,4 years down the road. As long as you make smart trades and don't give up your best prospects for 2 or 3 months of baseball from a mediocre player or two.

There's more to baseball than hitting. And 'roid allegations from a Yankee fan? Pot, kettle, black.

JonE is the Mitch WIlliams of the baseball forum. He has one pitch. It is a roid take. A Sox player is having a great season. The answer is roids. He is having a bd year. It is the lack of roids.

That makes sense actually. HGH-Rod is having a down year, for him.

He played down here in Clearwater a couple of weeks ago, and a friend of mine knows him. Went backstage and got to chat with him for a bit. Nice guy.

And HGH Ortiz is having a good year. Listen, if anyone thinks that their team (player(s) is oblivious to taking some kind of performance taking drug, then they are an idiot.

Good luck Sawx!

I'm not saying that at all. All I'm saying is that throwing around baseless accusations is lazy and irresponsible.

Am I naive enough to think that the Sox are squeaky clean? Of course not. But I'm not going to accuse anyone without any proof.

You would be in the same if not worse shape if that 3/5 of the rotation was pitching. 2 of them are horrible.

So Thor, let me ask you this. Do you think Bonds has ever taken anything or do you need proof? I mean, they never proved OJ decided that his wife looked better looking without a head, but everyone with any brains knows he did it.

JFF look at it from the Sox fan point of view.

Yankee fans love to throw out baseless accusations regarding Sox players.

All we heard from Skank fans are Big Papi is on roids because he went from nothing to perenial contender for MVP. Why?

Yankee fan: Roids.

Boston Fan: His numbers gradually improved during his last few season in Minnesota through his few in Boston. The Sox signed a 27yo player that is entering his prime. Going from a pitcher's park to a hitter's park. The talent level surrounding him is alot better. He should get better.

Sox fan can make a valid argument. Yankee fan can not. Short of a 160lb picture of a 22yo Big Papi in the Twin farm system appearing on Smoking Gun, Skank fans sound like idiots making baseless acusations. Is Big Papi roid free? I do not know. Can his rise be attributed to things I said above and not seem too far fetched? Yes.

I know, its hard to find pics of him on the twins. Because he never did jack sh#t for them. Then his head explodes, his chest double sized, and he starts jacking home runs w/sox. Sorry, but changing ballparks doesnt make that big of a difference. He took roids, as did Wily Mo Pena, who if you look at his pics as a Yankee minor leaguer, he was average size, now he's big as ortiz.

Changing parks doesnt make that big of a difference? Why don't you ask Mike Lowell? And I'm sure that if you hit the weight room, of course you wouldn't know this, you can pack on plenty of muscle with the right training and eating habits. There has not been one ounce of evidence except for a couple pictures when guys were younger. Give it up.
