Pedroia has fractured foot

The Red Sox will be without the man most consider to be their Most Valuable Player for the next several weeks, as it was learned this morning that Dustin Pedroia has a non-displaced fracture in the navicular bone of his left foot.

How long will Pedroia be out? Obviously a minimum of 15 days because he was placed on the disabled list today, but realistically it will be longer. The Red Sox doctors are pouring through the tests done by San Francisco’s medical staff, and a time-table will become more apparent once they study everything. Pedroia will see Red Sox medical director Thomas Gill and also Dr. George Theodore, the team’s foot specialist, on Monday in Boston.

In the meantime, Bill Hall will probably get the bulk of the at-bats at second base. Angel Sanchez has been summoned from Pawtucket to help from a depth standpoint.

Is this the same George Theodore who played OF for the Mets in 1973-74?

OK, so let me get this straight:
.
Ellsbury – out indefinately due to broken ribs resulting from Beltre.
Hermida – out indefinately with broken ribs resulting from Beltre.
Pedroia – out with a fractured foot.
Beckett — out with a sore back.
Drew — out with the daily injury.
Dice-K — in for now but was out for half the season.
Lowell — out with another injury to the hip.
Martinez – left foot injury but playing hurt
Youk – day to day injury on left arm
Tazawa, Junichi (P) – Tommy John surgery

Does this…KIND of worry us? I have never seen such a battered team in a while. The Sox can’t stay healthy.

I also forgot Jed Lowrie. Poor guy can’t cut a break.

Pedrio’s injury–can you get a layman definition for navicular bone fracture–where is that bone on the foot?—–what do they mean by fracture? Will this require surgery?

I feel so bad after the night he had with the Rockies–three home runs—hitting well—he was on a roll.
I hope his team mates will step up and not let them get down. Last night was sooooooooooo disappointing and frustrating—all those men left on base–Giant pitchers all over the place—for me a very old timer– I felt it was 1950’s again. Now we are behind the Yankees again.

I am praying for a quick recovery.

Some tough news with Pedroia’s injury, this is a team that has played the bulk of the season without Beckett and Ellsbury. Pedroia did play the final month or so back in 2007 with a broken bone in his wrist, he showed some grit/toughness during that stretch. Who knows when he’ll be back ( obviously we’ll know more when Boston wings it back east ) but whenever a timetable/date is announced, he’ll be back before that date. Pedroia brings so much to the table, throw away the numbers when talking about what he means to the Red Sox. Baseball is a very long season and injuries will happen, that’s the nature of the game. Boston will just have to do without one of their best for a stretch.

Well, Dave, now you might have to add Buch to that list, with a hamstring.

Hyperextended left knee for Buch, apparently…

It shows how resilient the Red Sox are and just three games off the pace and tied for the wc. Did the Sox put JD on the DL? Is JD day to day? Pedey with a fractured foot and yet is anxious to play. Cameron is playing hurt. JD is out for how many days now? with whatever the pain, ailment. Unbelievable.

Hey Brian, since we seem to be running low on available pitchers, how long until we see Charlie Zink? ;)

Or we could put BOOF back on the roster…

The loss of pede is gonna make staying near the top tougher then it’s already been. What has really impressed me is the talent within our farm system, they keep bringing up guys that make an ‘instant impact’ and help the club stay competitive when our stars fall outta the sky. Now if they could find some mid-inning relief, we still have a shot.

Zink is now with the Twins AA affiliate in Rochester.

The RedSox will need a deep and really good outing from Jon Lester today. Well if anyone can do it, I guess Jon can.

2 games back of the Yanks, tied with the Rays, keep plugging away RedSox!!!

Onward and upward

This just in!!! The Sox have received a Special Dispensation from High Commissioner of Baseball Bud Bugsy Selig; the Sox will not be playing the San Francisco Giants. They will be playing the ICU Unit from SF General Hospital,,,,,, and not the doctors and nurses, they’ll play the patients. Finally,, DGN, fairness arrives in the MLB.

Great game by Lester and the Sox. 3-3 on the road trip, but could well have been 5-1. Sox are in the WC hunt bigtime! The trouble is: how can they possibly weather the storm of all these injuries?

Lester showing everyone why he is among the “BEST” starting pitchers in all of baseball. How about the Red Sox this year against top notch pitchers in the N.L. Halladay got bombed in Philly, Jimenez got hit hard the other night in Denver and Lincecum was toast after 3 innings today. Impressive at bats against guys that have won Cy Young Award’s ( Halladay & Lincecum ) and ( Jimenez ) who will win the Cy Young award in the N.L. this year.

OK, so let me get this straight:
.
Ellsbury – out indefinately due to broken ribs resulting from Beltre.
Hermida – out indefinately with broken ribs resulting from Beltre.
Pedroia – out with a fractured foot.
Beckett — out with a sore back.
Drew — out with the daily injury.
Dice-K — in for now but was out for half the season.
Lowell — out with another injury to the hip.
Martinez – left foot injury but playing hurt
Youk – day to day injury on left arm
Tazawa, Junichi (P) – Tommy John surgery
Martinez – Out with a busted toe
Buchotz – out with a hamstring.

Oh ya we face the Rays on Tuesday with Shields, THE Shields going for the Rays. AH!!!
.
By the way – Way to go Lester.

Lester’s dominance in the complete game victory gave the much needed reprieve to the bp and the sole possession of the wc lead. The bp after 2 days of rest should be ready for the Rays. The depths of the Sox should be able to adsorb and sustain the loss of a streak of injuries.

Lester’s sac fly was a HR at Fenway. I would be concerned that the Sox have to face Shields and Garza if this is April. Go Sox.

I think that considering all the infirmary inductees of late that the RedSox are doing an outstanding job holding the season together. Good job!!!

Martinez isn’t out with a fractured thumb, the toe is not the issue this time.

that should read:::
Martinez IS out with a fractured thumb; the toe IS NOT the issue this time.

Did anyone see the Rays dugout yesterday and the “animosity” that was going on between Upton and Evan Longoria?? Apparently Longoria thought that Upton has been doggin’ some plays and not running out some balls…

I think that the dissention bug has bitten the Rays.

well its been awhile since we have seen the sox this battered…can yuke and papi carry the team…is there a diamond hidden somewhere ….or will theo sign or make a trade with available big names on losin teams….what would we trade for this piece….theo better react soon….lets all keep our fingers craossed….judge

That was not Tito’s finest hour – the management of the 6th inning seemed in explainable to me – and why we lost ultimately. Maddon had the sense to pull Garza early. Francona did not for Dice-K. That was the difference.

A trend that concerns me this year (seems to me all year — no matter our players, bench or starters) is the inability to score more than one inning a game, sometimes two. But this year, it seems like we often score early, and that is about it, big or small.
