Globe Can't Remember Which Leg Is Bothering Salty

Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been put on the disabled list because of an infection in one of his legs. Which leg? Don't ask the Globe.

Amalie Benjamin writes that it is a "a lower left leg infection",while Peter Abraham reports Salty has "a sore lower right leg".You'd think the press corps who peddled a fictitious tale about Manny's knees would get its facts straight about which leg is bothering Salty.

Update: Other reports followed the Globe. We can use them as tie-breakers. Kevin McNamara of the Providence Journal says "lower right leg". The Herald's Scott Lauber tells us "lower right leg". Mike Petraglia of WEEI's Full Count posts: "soreness in his lower right leg".
