Does anybody know why Damon was replaced with Crespo in the 7th last night? I was at the game and not privy to any info.

On the NESN replay, you could see him wincing and kind of holding his left side rib area after that long foul to right. Remy speculated that may have been the reason he came out after that AB. I didn't hear anything on the post game show, though.

Yeah, no mention of anything in any of the papers or Sox websites today. I know he's been favoring one of his knees for a few weeks now since he fouled a pitch off one of 'em, so perhaps he just came out because it was a 6-run game in the late innings for a little extra rest.

They were out of wine in the .406 club...

Per Rotoworld:

"Johnny Damon said his removal from last night's game after six innings had nothing to do with an injury. We suppose we ought to take his word for it. Damon should be available tonight. (2:12 pm)"
