Game 79: Rays (44-32) @ Red Sox (47-31)

Loading Scores

Here's a funny story from the Globe's Peter Abraham today:

Right now, as I write this, Dustin Pedroia is kneeling on the grass at second base taking grounders from Tim Bogar.

Seriously.

And not pitty-pat grounders to your kid in the backyard. These are big league groundballs. He then flips the balls to coach Rob Leary.

Yeah, six weeks. That sounds right.

[...]

Pedroia, of course, played it off.

"I was just out there for five minutes. I’m pretty bored. Not really a lot for me to do right now," he said. "I’ve got to keep my arm in shape. Just throwing on my knees, taking some groundballs. It’s not bad. We do it in spring training."

"Hanging out. That’s all I do It’s miserable."

Pedroia joked that he would be fine if the team kept winning. "If we start losing, I might panic, start walking. But I’ll be alright."

You know you got the bad end of this deal? Kelli Pedroia. How about having to deal with him being on crutches all day?

Poor Kelli.

ANYWAY, we actually have a game tonight. Dice-K starts tonight for the Sox, hoping to get the short-series sweep:

And the lineups. J.D. Drew is out with a stiff neck. Awesome:
