Don't dig in, Alex

With Curt Schilling on the mound tonight in a game where the Red Sox literally have nothing to lose, I'd say Alex Rodriguez ought to be light on his feet (some already think he's light in his loafers, if you know what I mean), after yesterday's dirty slide into Dustin Pedroia.

Pedroia came across the bag and threw to first base, just barely missing pulling off the double play, and was stunned when Rodriguez slid on the infield side of the base and threw his left elbow into his left side as he popped out of the slide.

“He went in late and kind of threw an elbow,” Pedroia said. “It was a little cheap but no big deal. I’ll remember.
Schilling will probably remember too. If A-Rod comes up with no one on or with a large Sox lead, I'd expect Schilling to protect his rookie second baseman with a two-seamer in the ol' rib cage.
