Papelbon scare

Without knowing how important he could be to the team this year, I was still very worried when I heard about how Papelbon got hit on the ankle in yesterday's game. With all the question marks when it comes to the starting rotation, one more 'if' could topple the whole thing.

“I’m as fortunate as I can be,” said Papelbon, who suffered only a bruise and didn’t require X-rays. “If that ball is an inch higher on my ankle, I’m probably done for 3-6 months. The Big Man Above was watching out for me.”
