Because they have created a magic potion that disguises there steroid use when it comes to testing. We should find the recipe than our players will only be lost for days to weeks like NY, rather than months to years like us.

This was my exact thought either that or we are a bunch of pansies.

Come on...they're tested just like the Red Sox players are. To state that it's because of some secret undetectable steroid is more than likely a fallacy - can't tell if ya'll were joking or not. On a side note I'm not exactly enamored with the Red Sox medical staff.

Some teams are just lucky with injuries despite age and other factors. The Red Sox injuries are getting pretty ridiculous. Interesting read:

Injuries ravaged the roster in the first half, forcing many of those unlikely players in to regular roles. The Red Sox placed 20 different players on the disabled list, six more than any other American League squad. Of those 20, 11 have appeared in an All-Star Game.

In all, the Red Sox lost a combined 1,083 days to the disabled list in the first half.

Injuries abducted Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury and Andrew Bailey from the roster. Dustin Pedroia finally succumbed to his seemingly inevitable DL fate. For all but Crawford, there's no reason to think that production won't come with health in the second half.

HGH is the key. They got a supplier in Andy Petite
