Francona discusses injuries with D&H

The injury bug that crept up and hit Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron has found it's way to Josh Beckett, and Terry Francona joined Dale & Holley (featuring Rob Bradford) on Wednesday to discuss the state of health for the three Red Sox starters. 

 

Beckett is the most recent recipient of an "injury" and Francona said Beckett was "moving around a little bit better than he was last night." Tim Wakefield will make the start in place of Beckett, and that will give Francona and his staff an extra day to figure out the next step with the struggling pitcher. 

 

"Because of the off day and because of Wake pitching we can slot in [Clay Buchholz], [Jon] Lester and [John] Lackey, and they all still get an extra days rest, which is good." Francona said. "Then we can make a decision on Beckett. Is he ready to pitch when we go to New York? If he is, does he just slot in? If not, we would...

Mashup: HS hoops star exposed as fraud

We've got a couple of offbeat stories from the world of high school athletics to lead off Wednesday's Morning Mashup. In Texas, a basketball standout was discovered to be a 22-year-old man who had graduated from high school in Florida three years earlier. And in Southern California, a pole vaulter was disqualified after winning her event, costing her team a league title, because she wore a friendship bracelet. The coach of the eventual championship team pointed out the infraction and now is getting some heat for it. Also, New England native and Boston College product Charlie Davies was left off the roster of the U.S. World Cup team because he has not yet fully recovered from injuries sustained in a car crash last year. Check out those stories and more at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Brady on D&C: 'I'm feeling really good'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and gave his thoughts on the upcoming season. The two-time Super Bowl MVP is optimistic as the season nears. "I'm feeling really good and excited," Brady said. "Every day that goes by I feel one day closer to football season, so I'm pretty happy about that."

 

Brady was asked about the changes in his personal life over the past few years and how it relates to his offseason preparation. Once a fixture at Foxboro during the offseason, Brady now lives with his family in California. "I'm not able to be here as much as I once was," said Brady. "Which was here [Foxboro] for every workout, now I'm here for significantly less then that. But like I said, I have a son that lives out in LA. He was born in August of 2007 and I didn't get to see him much for the first six months of his life so there are some months in the...

Varitek: 'I kicked the game-winning FG'

Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek expressed amusement about Boston Mayor Tom Menino's proclamation on Monday that he "split the uprights" to guide the Patriots to a Super Bowl triumph.

 

"I kicked the game-winning field goal," Varitek chuckled. "He probably read a ‘V’ and wasn’t sure which one it was. That’s all I heard, all day long – loosening up, in the bullpen, coming back from the bullpen."

 

Varitek did note that he spent some time as a kicker -- among many other positions -- during his football playing days. He said that his most momentous accomplishments as a kicker (and, for that matter, punter) came as a result of an injury to a teammate when he was a sophomore in high school.

 

"I was a toe kicker," said Varitek. "I have a couple extra points under my belt in high school."
