MLB Injury News:
Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino exited last night's contest against the Chicago White Sox in the sixth inning after sustaining a hamstring injury. Victorino is out of the team's Tuesday lineup, and it's not clear if the ailment will require a trip to the disabled list.
Following last night's game, Victorino expressed frustration to reporters -- including Scott Lauber of The Boston Herald. He feels that it's been one injury after another, as he missed time earlier this season to a sore back.
“It seems like if it ain’t one thing, it’s another right
now,” Victorino said. “They say it’s all connected. That’s what’s frustrating for
me. What is it? I just want to get back to being healthy and being out there
and being a healthy player and feeling good.”
After missing a week in April due to the back tightness, Victorino aggravated the injury last week, resulting in another two games on the bench. Last night, while he was attempting to leg out an infield single, Victorino said he felt "a little something grab" in the back of his hamstring. He attempted to take the field in the bottom of the inning, but manager John Farrell lifted him before the frame began.
Battling through injuries this season, Victorino has hit .283/.343/.362 with four doubles and two home runs over 142 plate appearances. The Red Sox signed the veteran to a three-year, $39 million contract over the winter.
If Victorino is forced to miss extensive time as a result of the injury, the Red Sox could considering recalling outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr.

The Boston Red Sox have been without shortstop Stephen Drew for the past two nights after he suffered a back injury. While Drew's injury sounds painful -- he described it as "hypertension on my spine" -- he said told Rob Bradford of WEEI.com that he doesn't plan on sitting out much longer.

The English writer Aldous Huxley once said, "We participate in a tragedy; at a comedy we only look."
That's from Brave New World. Page 84 I think. I'm not really sure as I went to an "alternative" high school for dysfunctional teachers. It was a cross between Glee and Welcome Back, Kotter. Imagine the sweathogs singing...
Jacoby Ellsbury, near MVP in 2011 and owner of an injury plagued campaign in 2012, may be getting dropped out of the leadoff spot shortly in the Red Sox lineup.

Ryan Dempster picked his son up at school, and then he got to play with him on the field at the ballpark.
It was just like the old days. Just at a different ballpark and wearing a different uniform.
Dempster was back in Chicago on Monday when the Boston Red Sox opened a three-game series against the White Sox. It was Dempster's first game in the city as a visiting player since...

Baseball is unlike any other of the major sports for many reasons, one being the fact that one year a player can have a monster break through season and then just as easily disappear into the corn fields. Daniel Bard is a perfect example of that. Bard came onto the scene with a young, strong arm with great strikeout stuff. He was one of the best set...

Wednesday’s game in Chicago wasn’t a must-win for the Red Sox, but it held a lot of weight. A victory meant a positive end to an overall solid road trip, whereas a loss would have had the Red Sox once again taking a long look at themselves.
The Red Sox started off their nine-game trip by winning five of their first six games, including three straight against the Twins in Minnesota...

Let's forget that the offense didn't do anything last night, and take a look at the plus side for a second. His name is Felix Doubront, and he pitched really well in 6 innings. He kept us within striking distance the whole game, but as I've already mentioned, the offense didn't get him the run support he needed. I noticed when I flipped back...
The White Sox handed Boston its second straight loss in a 3-1 win at US Cellular Field.
Chicago starter Jose Quintana dominated, holding the Red Sox hitless into the 7th inning before unraveling. He gave up three straight hits (including a David Ortiz broken-bat single that opened things up) and was pulled from the game in favor of reliever Jesse Crain, who I still always think...
