What is the appropriate emotional reaction to this injury? It undoubtedly helps the Sox (unless Palpatine Steinbrenner sends $30 Mil or so to the Reds for Junior Griffey), but you don't want to win because the other guy is hurt, do you? Is it wrong that there would be much more glee and much less consternation if it had happened to someone truly deplorable like Slappy McNonClutch or that little biyatch, Dumbo? I'm conflicted here, help a guy out.

Moral Quandry (This Week in Hideous Arm Injuries)
So, imagine you are a Red Sox fan. And you just took 2 of 3 from the evil MFY's and Judas Jones, Right There, Right Now like. So you are already pretty happy.
