Once again, we turn to science to bring the Red Sox the mojo needed to overcome the Toronto Blue Jays.
Zinc is an incredibly useful mineral. It is used in batteries, in galvanizing metal, and is a vital mineral in keeping a healthy body. It is the fourth most common mineral in use today. In fact it would be hard to imagine a world without zinc.
It also would be hard to imagine a Red Sox team without Matt Clement. He has been one of our more consistent starters this year, and has flourished in Boston. With the help of zinc, lets hope Clement can dispatch with the Blue Jays quickly and easily.
Copper his a reddish metal with a high conductivity. Copper is used frequently in wire and conduit for its ease in transmitting energy. Copper also is used much in cookware for it's ability to transmit heat. In fact, copper is one of the few metals used more than zinc is.
Copper is here for Keith Foulke, for a little mojo to help him regain his electric stuff.
Of course, let's not forget: What do you get when you start off with zinc and cap it off with copper? Well, in the words of Vince Vaughn in Swingers, you are so money and you don't even know it.

Tungsten means "heavy stone" in Swedish and Danish. We know there are enough heavy metal aficionados on the team to make this element particularly apt. There used to be more stoners, but that's another story.
Tungsten has the highest melting point and lowest vapor pressure of all metals, so, like the Red Sox, it can take the heat. Alloys of tungsten are particularly suited for high temperature uses such as lightbulb filaments. Despite its grey to white hue, it can be applied with colorful results: tungsten salts are used in the tanning industry.
And Ortiz said, "Let there be light."
And there was.
Edit: Grammar and all that jazz.

Manganese is Element 25
As Manganese contains 25 protons, so too do the Red Sox contain 25 core players that function together as a team. The name Manganese derives from the Greek “magnesia” or magnet as to 'draw towards or attract'. Appropriately enough, Manganese is used as an alloy in steel manufacturing where less strong metals are blended together to forge items of great strength and power. Just as the Red Sox as a team are stronger and more powerful than 25 individual players.
