Slings and Arrows

More great news: Jed Lowrie is visiting today a Baltimore hand specialist, Dr. Tom Graham. And the options are not encouraging: 1) minor surgery, bone removal, six week recovery; 2) injections and rehab, one month or more recovery; 3) major surgery, season ending.

This is the same injury that nagged Lowrie last year, yesterday's MRIs confirmed. Lowrie admitted that it's been bothering him now for the last 2 and 1/2 to 3 weeks.

This is a pretty big blow to the Sox, who were obviously were even more dependent on Lowrie's emergence in light of the Julio Lugo situation. And you gotta feel for the kid. He finally gets his chance to seize the starting shortstop gig full-time and then this happens. This can't be a good day for many in the Sox clubhouse.
