Lowell's Hip - archive from 10/6/08

Dear Curt,

I'm worried about the Red Sox. Beckett did not look sharp last night, Lowell can barely walk, Casey's not even injured and he's slower than Lowell and Pedroia is playing like his size: Small. Is there any hope that these guys make it to the next round let alone the World Series? -Nervous in Newton

Dear Nervous,

Really, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Look, the Sox are a veteran team and from time to time veterans get injured. Sure, my grandmother has better hips than Lowell, but she can't hit a breaking pitch. Pedroia and Beckett are obviously hitting the bars a little too late at night. Those guys think this is a frat house and not the major leagues. Personally, I've been blogging from the hyperbaric chamber and almost have feeling in my right arm! I may just be more game ready than Josh at this point. What the hell is an oblique muscle, and how to do you "pull" it? I'm no doctor but I might as well be for all the hospital rooms I've seen in my career! Trust me, I know Josh, and he does a lot of "pulling", but I have no idea what kind of super powered porn he was looking at to hurt a muscle in his stomach. Not for nothing, but I'd also be concerned about Papi. He seems to be hitting the ball straight up in the air, which is a neat party trick, but it's not going to cut it in the playoffs. All of that said, the Red Sox are STILL the best team, and the team to beat. They will beat the Angels tonight - 5-2. Little Petey will have three hits, and Josh will nail two fat hookers before his next start. Bring that to the bank (if your bank is still open). -Curt
