Jacoby Ellsbury scratched with a groin

You can say that, right? That’s the relatively modern injury-naming convention? “out with a knee,” “day-to-day with a shoulder?”  Maybe “scratched” and “groin” too close together is a problem. Oh well, too late to change it now!

Anyway:

 

Gotta blame Erik Kratz here, don’t you? If the Phillies’ backup catcher had a better arm Ellsbury may have only attempted three or four steals last night. That fifth one, however, was a bridge too far.

God, Boston probably really hates you, Erik Kratz.
