Report: Bedard served papers before start

Erik Bedard was served with papers from Massachusetts Probate and Family Court in a child support case at Fenway Park hours before he made his start against the Orioles on Tuesday night, according to a report in the New York Post. The papers were served on behalf of Bedard's ex-girlfriend who said that she didn't have his address.

Bedard worked just 2 2/3 innings on Tuesday in his first appearance since Sept. 3.

Sources: Hernandez will be out 2-4 weeks

Sources now indicate that the Patriots will lose tight end Aaron Hernandez for two to four weeks because of a left knee injury he suffered in Sunday’s win over the Chargers. Hernandez, who is third on the team with 14 catches for 165 yards and two touchdowns on two games, has combined with fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski to form a dynamic portion of the New England passing game. The news that Hernandez would miss time was first reported by Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. For more on the Patriots, check out weei.com/patriots.

Tito on Schilling: 'I don't give a [expletive]'

Prior to Tuesday night's game against the Orioles, Red Sox manager Terry Francona was asked about former Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's suggestion on WEEI that he expected the Red Sox to miss the playoffs. Francona said that he had not heard the comments, but that he had little reaction to them.

"I don’t give a [expletive]. I didn’t even know what the hell you were talking about," Francona shrugged after being told of the retired pitcher's comments.

Francona similarly had little to say about David Ortiz' suggestion that the Sox should move Alfredo Aceves to the rotation.

"Believe it or not, I haven’t read a paper," said Francona. "There’s so many [media members] here that if you ask questions and someone gives an answer, I’ll be answering them all day. For Schill...

Bedard may start over Lackey in NY

With Red Sox starter Erik Bedard set to pitch on Tuesday against the Orioles for the first time since Sept. 3, Sox manager Terry Francona said that the team would see how he emerged from the start before making a determination about whether to have the left-hander or John Lackey start the series finale in New York this weekend against the Yankees.

Right now, Bedard is scheduled to pitch on Tuesday with Josh Beckett pitching the series finale against the Orioles in Fenway Park on Wednesday. After an off-day on Thursday, Jon Lester will open the series in Yankee Stadium on Friday, with Tim Wakefield pitching on Saturday.

Then, Francona said, depending on how Bedard feels, the Sox will either have him pitch (on four days' rest) on Sunday or turn to Lackey (on five days' rest). If Bedard pitches, then the Sox would push Lackey back to pitch on six days' rest on Monday.

"They can be flip-flopped," Francona said of Bedard (5-9, 3.50...

Buchholz on sim game: 'A first step'

Clay Buchholz faced hitters for the first time since going on the disabled list on June 16, throwing 25 warm-up pitches in the bullpen and then 32 pitches in a simulated inning against Red Sox hitters Jose Iglesias, Lars Anderson, Ryan Lavarnway and Joey Gathright. Buchholz said that he felt no discomfort in his back, something that he suggested offered promise as he tries to prepare himself to pitch in the postseason should the Red Sox make the playoffs.

The right-hander suggested that he was throwing at 85 to 90 percent intensity, holding back only because he didn't want to injure any teammates if he hit them with his fastball. He threw his complete repertoire of a fastball, curveball, changeup and cutter, and suggested that his arm reacted well to the full assortment of pitches.

"Location wasn’t what it should be, which is expected, but ball's coming out of my hand and no problem with the back. It feels good," said...
