Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does.

David Ortiz was pulled from the Sox lineup last night just before the start of the game in Oakland. Many people assumed that he had gotten a case of the flu that had affected several other members of the team, including Kevin Youkilis most recently.

The news came out this morning that Big Papi was suffering chest pains, a recurrance of the pain he had a few days ago. At that point, it was believed to be dehydration and stress, but the fact that this is happening again has everyone in Red Sox Nation nervous.

I think that increasing the concern over Ortiz's condition is memories of former Northeastern and Celtics star Reggie Lewis. Most folks around here remember that Reggie had a heart condition and eventually died on a practice court.

With stuff like this, the results of the games kind of become irrelevent. All we can do is hope that Papi is OK and keep him and his family in our thoughts.
