Okajima Back Thursday; Yook: No Fracture

The plan for Hideki Okajima: throw a side session Tuesday, rest Wednesday, and see action against the Twins on Thursday.

Kevin Youkilis, on his MRI: "No fracture, just inflammation in the joint." Speaking of Youkilis, when David Ortiz explained why he did not take a planned night off on Friday, he said: "We've got no choice. We've got [Kevin Youkilis], we've got Manny [Ramirez] out. So, we just have to keep on playing."

Tiz said only Manny's first name, but how did he refer to Youkilis? Thinking it might be something obscene (and humourous), I emailed Jeff Goldberg of the Courant. His reply: "He said 'Youk' and since it was first reference, I bracketed it. No biggie." Rats.

Mike Lowell, on Tiz beating out a squibber to Scoitt Kazmir in the first inning: "What David doesn't know is that Kazmir ate a sandwich before throwing to first." ... The Red Sox struck out 17 times last night -- their highest one-game total since August 12, 1974, a 4-2 loss to Nolan Ryan (9-7-2-2-19).

In 18 September games, Jacoby Ellsbury is hitting .388 with a 1.037 OPS (with at least one hit in 17 of those 18 games), but he has been swinging and missing at a lot of low inside fastballs. ... Sean McAdam notes that Curt Schilling put his house in Medfield on the market this week.

I've driven by curt's house...I guess he's moving to tampa bay. hah.

I've also noticed how ugly jacoby looks on hard heat inside...i guess it doesn't match up to his swing very well.

Curt is putting his house up for sale? I guess that doesn't bode well for him coming back next summer.

Thanks for trying! :)

Excuse me? He might swing and miss, but he never looks ugly.
