E-Rod Out Until Mid-May Says Crack Sox Medical Team

No longer "nothing" or "one-day's problem", a serious knee injury will keep lefty starter Eduardo Rodriguez out until early to mid-May. Given the track record of the Red Sox medical team (Drs. Howard, Fine and Howard), look for E-Rod's return just after the All-Star Break. Again, with Boston as the medical epicenter of the world, how does John Henry manage to hire these stumble bums to keep his team "healthy"? It's really a toss-up as to whose prognostication skills are worse: New England meteorologists or Red Sox doctors. Poor John Farrell, he has to cover for these guys, "He's a starter. You can't skip any steps here. Days of recovery and rest are required." Thanks for clearing that up!
