    Red Sox with another injury

    The horrendous stretch of medical bad luck continued Friday for the Red Sox when Jonathan Papelbon left Friday's game with one out in the ninth inning after throwing a pitch to Toronto's Lyle Overbay.

    I blame years of steroid abuse.

    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Re: Red Sox with another injury

    Will Carroll (BP's "Under the Knife" writer) gets a you-called-it for writing this back on 8/21:

    Trailing as I type this, the Sox have struggled with injuries all season long, creatively filling the gaps with available replacement players and a deep farm system. Nevertheless, there's a point where this strategy falls apart, and it's something we see repeatedly with teams that suffer multiple concurrent injuries. Jonathan Papelbon may have pitched well this season, but his mechanics show just how fatigued he is at this point of the year. His arm is flying out, leaving many of his pitches up and in to right-handed hitters. He still has good velocity, meaning he can get away with mistakes, but if he continues to lose efficiency, he'll only get more fatigued, a cycle that normally doesn't end well.
    Not all who wander are lost
