The Boston Red Sox: "What, Me Worry?"


This was Dustin Pedroia doing his best Alfred E. Newman Thursday, after x-rays on his left wrist showed no damage from where he sprained it in a Tuesday spring practice game against the Minnesota Twins. Pedroia may be all smiles, but that's not keeping Red Sox fans from slipping back into their pre-1994 ways. Over the Monster presents to the public "The Paranoid's Guide to the Red Sox, Part I: Riverdancing with Wolves." The title alone is worth the going to the trouble of linking up to it. First up is a look at the flaws in the pitching of Jonathan Papelbon, including the dependence on the fastball, and lack of success with secondary pitches. This and this ominous warning:
When you've got a 1-pitch pitcher with a lot of wear on his arm, and a big free agent contract on the horizon, the last thing you expect is a big season. In 2010, the only thing Jonathan Papelbon will be saving is himself... for the Yankees.
Be afraid, Boston, be very afraid.
