With Ortiz on the mend and expected back by the end of the month the Sox seemed poised to make a run in the playoffs. The bullpen is still shaky, but hope Masterson can help fortify the situation in right field.
At the break, I would have to say that Pedroia has to be the team MVP. He has been the most consistent player at the plate and in the field. His energy and passion for the game is something that every player should have. I think the Red Sox have found their Jeter for the next 10-12 years. When V-Tek is ready, I think Pedroia will have a C on his chest.
One last question, rain is in the New York forecast for tomorrow, what would MLB do if the All-Star game got rained out? Bud you should get the braintrust working on that now because we all know you don't think well on your feet.
