Haren, Beckett, Lackey, Papelbon

Big Papi, Jeter, Bonds, OkajimaToday marks the second day of the All-Star break for the Boston Red Sox. It is much needed by some (Youk) and some probably would not like to see it (Lugo). Youk because he needs to rest his sore quad, Lugo because of the great game he had at the plate on Sunday. The Red Sox have 6 players in San Francisco for the game and all but one (Manny), decided to meet with the media on Monday. The good thing is at least Manny got there this time. With that being said, let’s take a look at the headlines from the Boston area media on this sweltering hot morning here in New England.
