What the Red Sox Did

As many of you probably kow, Aramis Ramirez went down with an injury yeaterday, and the Cubs are also dealing with the injuries of Lee and Zambrano, and Soto isn't hitting well. The Red Sox, have had similar problems this year. First, their centerfielder and their shortstop both go down with injuries, Lowries being season ending. So they call up Nick Green and Johnathon Van Every, and they step it up. Van Every is slugging 636 and Green is hitting 278 and drove in 11. Then Dice-K goes down with an injury, so they call on Justin Masterson. Now Masterson started off good, but then declined a bit.  But that's not the point, the point is, he gave his team a chance to win in 2 of his starts. These 3 men have kept the Red Sox winning while their everyday players have been out.  As for other guys stepping up, the Cubs need to bring someone up who can play third (if I'm not mistaken, can't Fox play third?) and he needs to step it up. So, who will that be? Who will, step it up? If nobody can, then we're staring at 2009 Chicago Cubs, the team that could've.
