Are the Red Sox cursed?

Red Sox David Ortiz thinks so. On Tuesday, another Red Sox player -- this time, Kevin Youkilis -- went down with a bizarre injury. Youkilis jammed his ankle while playing first base and then aggravated it while smoothing out the dirt in the batter's box. Ortiz told the Boston Globe:

"I've been playing this game for so long. I have never seen anything like this. We go through injuries every year but what I'm seeing right now is just like a curse.''

Youkilis is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday night. Anyway, click here to read the Boston Globe game story from the Rays' 3-2 victory Tuesday.
