Some Positive News On The Papi Injury Front

UPDATE: Papi Takes 50 More Swings Wednesday
OK, we've heard the readers who want us to be more positive. So, Maureen Mullen of CSNNE reports that David Ortiz "isn't feeling any extra pain" today after taking 50 swings in a batting cage yesterday. This legitimately qualifies as "good news" and should allow the DH to start base running drills again soon. However, to be fair with our reporting, the very same CSNNE reports (via Sean McAdam) that a realistic timetable for Ortiz's return is May 1st. Let's hope Papi is right, and McAdam is wrong.
