Doubront stays in Boston for tests

Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters prior to Friday night's game in Oakland that left-handed pitcher Felix Doubront did not make the trip to the West Coast, instead remaining in Boston to undergo a number of tests in an effort to determine the source of the discomfort in his clavicle. Thus far, Francona said, tests have come back negative. The Sox will continue to have the 22-year-old see other doctors, including a neurologist, in hopes of determining why he has been unable to return to the hill since an Aug. 31 outing against the Orioles.

 

"He actually felt better today and yesterday but since we weren’t going to pitch him, we want to eliminate anything. So we had an extensive amount of testing today," said Francona. "Everything came back clean. They checked for a lot of different things. It’s my understanding that they’re just trying to be conscientious."

 

Doubront is 2-2...

Gammons: Sox won't get Crawford
By: DJ Bean

 Peter Gammons of NESN and the MLB Network joined The Big Show Friday to discuss the future of the Red Sox. With the team a longshot to make the playoffs this season, the attention was turned to the offseason and the free agents the Red Sox could either re-sign or bring in from other clubs. The biggest name on the market figures to be Rays outfielder Carl Crawford, who Gammons believes will end up with the Angels. The Hall-of-Fame baseball analyst went into detail as to why Sox fans shouldn't expect Crawford to play his home games in Fenway Park next season. 

 

"I just don't think that the Red Sox can afford the $140 million for seven years that I think he will cost, particularly when the best guys they have that will be ready by the middle of next year -- [Anthony] Rizzo, [Ryan] Kalish, [Josh] Reddick -- are all left-handed hitters," Gammons said. "Obviously, Crawford is different from any of those guys --...
