Turns out Scenic Lowell has been playing with a busted rib since August 20th.
Of course he has.
If there is one guy who embodies the 2010 season for the Boston Red Sox, it's Mike Freaking Lowell.
After all the injuries, all the pitching issues, all the blown leads and extra innings losses combined with the Yankees and Rays seemingly never losing I'd have totally understood if the boys had just packed it up and started planning vacations to Hilton Head a month ago.
But they didn't.
Especially Mike Lowell.
No matter how this season ends up?
They packed a lunch and showed up every single day.
There aren't a whole lot of other teams when faced with the same circumstances would have done the same.
