The Seattle Times: Sports: AL notes: Pedro says injury lingers; GM disagrees

Duquette has to be a complete idiot. Pedro is not a 5 year old claiming a bellyache to get out of school. He is a grown man who understands what his body is telling him. If Pedro says he is still hurt, I believe him and so should his GM.

The Red Sox are the quintessential dysfunctional organisation. Collectively, the organisation and its fans are like a thousand tugboats tethered to a yacht, all pulling in a different direction. The desire for absolute control of every moment leads to winning some battles that may be more productive to lose which results in losing the war and its spoils. The "new england" mindset has yet to learn that control is achieved once control is relinquished. There are NO "i's" in team but there are too many "I's" in Red Sox Nation. The chip has become a boulder. It may take an avalanche to clear the harbour.
