David Ortiz to miss a week with bursitis

8 Comments

Red Sox’ DH David Ortiz missed last night’s game with bursitis in his right heel.  He’s going to need to be in a boot for a few days and tells WEEI’s Alex Speier that he expects to miss no more than a week.

In other news, the last time I heard someone complaining about bursitis, I was talking with my grandpa.  Of course, this pales compared to David Wells’ gout a few years ago.

Up next: we need a ballplayer to get a good case of dropsy or something.  I think they can cure all of these things with Smeckler’s Powder.
