Papi To Follow Youk To DL?

The Globe's Peter Abraham suggests that David Ortiz (and his injured foot) may be joining Kevin Youkilis (and his balky back) on the disabled list. Losing two key offensive threats at a critical juncture of the season brings back bad memories of the M*A*S*H unit that was the 2010 Red Sox.

And, by the way, doesn't the protracted and confused way both of these injuries were handled (not to mention the Buchholz debacle) again raise questions about the Red Sox medical team?

Maybe they can fly over the doctors from that Liverpool soccer team we're forced to watch on NESN. Never mind. Bad idea. They only deal with fake injuries.
