I suppose this could cut either good or bad. But it is still somewhat unsettling, for we fear the unknown:
The diagnosis of the injury suffered by the pitcher in the fourth inning Monday was originally classified as a sprain, but has since been identified as something different. It isn’t clear if it is more promising, or potentially more threatening. As the pitcher said after the loss, he has never experienced anything like this so answers will have to come when he visits with foot specialist Dr. George Theodore Tuesday.
For a team that for so much of the year looked like it was ready to be crowned, there are a lot of questions swirling around the Sox right now.
