Red Sox weekly recap (Week 26) FINAL
It's definitely been a rough journey, however despite the end result, the 2010 season hasn't been a complete waste. There were a lot of memorable highlights by a lot of players including veterans Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz and unknown rookies at the time who have made a name for themselves for the 2011 season in, Daniel Nava and Ryan Kalish.
Darnell McDonald too was included in the mix (but isn't exactly a rookie or vet) and really started the whole trend of surprises to come after Jacoby Ellsbury went down fracturing multiple ribs.
Ellsbury's injury was only the beginning of the domino effect as one-by-one Sox player after Sox player was placed on the disabled list some for the brief 15-days and others for an extended period of time.
So without further adieu, here's the final week of the recap. Technically there's one more game, being played today so later during the week I'll try to do a 2010 overall season review with final statistics and such.
Enjoy and go Red Sox!!!
