7.16: Out of left field

Out of Left Field: Manny's hammys tight again after All-Star jump around with Ortez. Left fielder has to DH and let stumble-bum Millar play outfield. Then KFK gives up on easy pop up (if it was a chicken wing or ice cream scoop, he would have caught it clean). Pedro needs another day off against Yankees. Francoma loses respect of Nation.

"Why do I have to pitch against the Yankees all the time?" -- Pedro Martinez

Um, because you're the highest paid pitcher in the history of baseball and the Red Sox are trailing the Yankees per usual, by an astounding eight games right now, and D-Lowe will face NY instead... but we're thrilled that you're in a "happy state" Petey. Meanwhile, Curt Schilling has stated that he never wants to miss a start against the Yankees.
