BEGINNING OF THE END

Miguel Tejada suffered a fractured wrist after being hit by a pitch this week, ending the fifth-longest streak of consecutive games played in baseball history. Take it from someone who’s seen what happens when a franchise middle infielder gets hit on the wrist, Orioles fans: It’s over. Miguel will now marry a soccer player more famous than he is while becoming an injury magnet and shadow of himself. Sad, but true.

MAKES PERFECT SENSE. NO, REALLY

The Sox took care of the gaping hole in their rotation left by Curt Schilling’s stint on the disabled list by promoting outfielder David Murphy. Clearly there’s another move coming and I’m not enlightened enough to see what it is. I’ll bet Theo Epstein was a hell of a show on that high school chess club.
