Zink Gets The Call

For once the most deserving player gets the call.

Tuesday evening at Fenway Park, Charlie Zink will make his major league debut after spending several seasons in the minors.

Zink's path the Boston included a switch to make him a knuckleball pitcher after the Red Sox told him that was probably his best chance to someday get to the majors.

Most people since Wakefield's DL stint was announced agreed that Zink most deserved the start on Tuesday, yet many also agreed it was unlikely because Zink had just pitched Friday for Pawtucket and would end up going on just three days rest.
