"I never liked that guy, but I loved watching him play." — Matt Garza on Pete Rose while comparing Charlie Hustle to Dustin Pedroia. An apt aphorism for this Yankee fan. The papernets say DP's foot won't require surgery. Not to say that a broken foot isn't bad. I hope Dustin gets back soon and feel for him, as gerbil has personal experience in this matter in the last couple weeks, suffering several injuries in the regions purview to Podroiatrists, allowing a foot's leeway in the turn of the phrase, or ankle.
James Shields is on the bump for the Rays, while John Lackey looks to continue his winning ways at Fenway. The Beast goes on.
