It looks like Red Sox Nation's long nightmare is finally coming to a close. David Ortiz appears healthy and ready to go, and will almost certainly make his first appearance since he injured his Achilles tendon on July 16 before the team leaves Cleveland.

Haggs Overreaches on Lackey, Media Overracts

There is no quick fix for the problems with the Red Sox.  One day it is bad starting pitching, the next it is bad base running, then a bullpen implosion and then no clutch hitting.  Just when things look hopeless the Sox go on a winning streak and keep the meager playoff hopes alive.  This team has been frustrating to watch and frustrating to define.  Many players on the...
