"Winning isn't everything, it is the only thing." - Vince Lombardi
The Red Sox (reigning World Champions) morphed into Red Sox redux amidst injuries (Matt Clement with a terrifying Floriesque beaning on the mound, Trot Nixon injured swinging), defensive struggles (Renteria), rookie debut (Manny Delcarmen with a powerful inning), and Curt Schilling struggling but hanging on.
The Sox won ugly but at least they won. If Nixon goes on the DL, then Hyzdu, like Zelda, might get extra lives. Meanwhile Jon Papelbon got his first AAA win with 8 Ks in 5 innings as the Pawsox won the first of two. Papelbon might be headed north as well, especially if Clement can't clear the cobwebs or worse.
Theo must be wearing out the cellphone batteries by now.
