Thursday's Morning Mashup
By: admin

A Vermont high school football player made an incredible mistake to cost his team a game, and we've got the video. Plus, links to all of the day's top stories, a trivia question about something positive that happened to the Red Sox at the end of the 1978 season, and a perturbed Billy Wagner with the Quote of the Day. Find it all at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Lowell to start Thursday

Mike Lowell said on Wednesday that his right hip had responded well to the shot of Synvisc and cortisone that he received on Monday. The third baseman will be back in the lineup, as expected, on Thursday for the opener of a four-game series against the Indians.

Wagner: 'A little bush league' for Jays to hit Ortiz

One day after Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon hit Adam Lind on the elbow with a pitch -- in a game in which the Toronto slugger hit three homers -- Blue Jays starter Roy Halladay threw a fastball that drilled David Ortiz on the elbow with his first pitch of the second inning. Ortiz remained in the game, and said after going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts that he was fine, and that the plunking was "over."
 
Red Sox reliever Billy Wagner, however, expressed displeasure at seeing the Boston D.H. get drilled, and in the fact that Halladay was merely warned by home plate umpire Mike DiMuro after doing so. Wagner suggested that the game situation on Tuesday -- a one-run game, and a closer who was rusty from not having pitched in six days -- demonstrated that the Sox weren't trying to hit Lind, and so the act of apparent retaliation by the Blue Jays did not sit well with the left-handed Sox bullpen member.

Wakefield on postseason: 'I don't make those decisions'

After he allowed five runs in just three innings of work while struggling badly with the diminished strength in his leg, Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield said that he would be happy to be on the postseason roster, but would support the team if he was not included.
 
"I don't make those decisions," he said. "Those decisions will come down in the next couple days, and I'll deal with it when the time comes. If I'm on the team, great, I'll give them everything I have whether it's in relief or a start. If I'm not, I'll be the biggest chearleader in the dugout."
 
Wakefield estimated that the strength in his left leg is "about 60 percent of what my right leg is, so fatigue sets in pretty quick." He confirmed that it's hard for him to cover first and field his position.

Halladay blanks Red Sox

Roy Halladay allowed just three hits and needed just 100 pitches to author a 12-0 complete game shutout of the Red Sox Wednesday night at Fenway Park. Joey Gathright broke up Halladay's no-hit bid with one out in the sixth with a soft liner to left field. The win completed a three-game sweep for the Jays, who hit another four homers on the night, and extended Boston's losing skid to six. The Red Sox used mostly back-ups in the contest, with David Ortiz and Alex Gonzalez the only regular position players to play. Tim Wakefield lasted just three innings, allowing seven hits and five runs. Dusty Brown became the third position player to pitch for the Red Sox this season, a new team record.
