Boston Red Sox - Sox must hope that the problem isn’t catching - The Boston Globe:
"The consensus among baseball people is that old standby Pudge Rodriguez, Joe Mauer, Yadier Molina, and Jeff Mathis can at least deter a running game. Rodriguez, who leads the National League in hitting for Washington but who came out of Friday’s game with tightness in his back, has had only one steal attempt against him this season."
Pudge Rodriguez is this decade's Don baylor. He will hang on for years and be on a contender half way through the season.
