Getting healthy takes time

Lots of nagging injuries these days, but whatever it takes to get healthy; we’ve got to be looking at the playoffs here.

Kevin Youkilis is still suffering from swelling in his hand several days after getting hit by Chien-Ming Wang. He likely won’t be seen in the Toronto series, and may be gone longer.

Manny Ramirez will rejoin the lineup whenever Manny says that Manny is ready. One report says that he won’t play until this weekend at least.

We’ve still got Hideki Okajima, Eric Gagne, Bobby Kielty, Mike Timlin, Tim Wakefield and Coco Crisp recovering from recent injuries/strains as well. Take your time, boys. Let’s go get ’em.

    David Ortiz is feeling the knee again, and might have sat this series if not for so many regulars being out. Jerry Remy said on the radio today that Manny looks fine in the cage; why isn’t he playing? Can’t he inconvenience himself even a little bit for his teammate, countryman and friend in Big Papi? Is it really that bad? If he’s dogging it, that would make him a world-class jerk.

    I bet Manny has been hurting all season, and didn’t even know it until something severe happened. Huge muscles are funny like that. They fast twitch and sometimes rip.

    On a side note. Ramirez would do himself some good if he were to cut his hair. Sir Manny of Locksley is probably carrying something on the order of 5 to 10 extra pounds on his head. Upon studying video I definitely see it affecting his swing; so, I believe this makes me justified in saying Manny head of hair is just too heavy.
