Repair & Replace? Too bad that ankle isn't still under warranty. Hopefully, he'll be good to go in a few weeks.

Rest and Relaxation, the part about continuing to run at this point being a degenerative process and it being a joint, not a soft tissue problem lead one to believe we might not see him again for a few weeks ... bone scan among next diagnostics ... Good luck with the rehab Frank!

Maybe Frank shouldn't come back at all. He might ruin the chemistry when re-joining the team.

How could Frank hurt is ankle?...all he did was jog around the bases after monster homeruns.

Hopefully his ankle heals, but this is why Carl Everett is on the team and all the trade talk was just talk. Remember, if any media source talks about a potential trade, than the trade is dead. Real trades just get announced and then Peter Gammons will tell everyone why the trade benefits the Red Sox.

I am under the impression that he did not necessarily re-injure himself, rather it is still not nearly healed enough for him to be able to play effectively. A month ago, it felt good enough to play on consistently, but with daily abuse it is bothering him. Anyone who has had even a mild ankle/foot ailment knows how dibilitating they can be and how long the healing process can take. Maybe Beckett can shed some light, because I am certainly not a doctor.

That doesn't mean it's anything serious. Patients usually see the physician who originally treated them, because that person is more familiar with their history.

Just resting for October. You guys are going to need a big fly once every 7 at bats.

It would truly suck if the greatest hitter of the modern era [who wasn't on the juice] is denied the chance to hit 500 homeruns and the chance to play in the World Series. Get well Big Hurt. This blows.

We've all heard of turf-toe, right? Sounds like something fairly minor that may produce a slight limp.

Well for those of you who believe that let me tell you how ****ing wrong you are. It hurt so bad. Every step was torture. When I finally went to get some treatment and was told it was turf-toe, my jaw hit the floor. I stopped calling NFL players ******* for sitting out w/that injury. It was actually hard for me to drive with it, never mind walk or run. So I have an idea what Frank is feeling.
