Red Sox right-fielder Shane Victorino underwent successful thumb surgery yesterday in Cleveland. (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is one of the rare times you will see the words "successful" and "Cleveland" in the same sentence.) Victorino injured a nerve in his right thumb during a game in September and missed a couple of starts. The Red Sox fully expect Victorino to be ready for Spring Training. The Flyin' Hawaiian' was a major cog in the World Championship wheel, slugging 15 HRs while hitting .294 and winning a Gold Glove.
