Francona on D&H: In Theo we trust

Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined the Dale & Holley show Wednesday from Anaheim for his weekly chat. Francona said he trusts general manager Theo Epstein will do what he can to help the team before Saturday's trade deadline. "He's trying his best, just like we do," Francona said. "We'll see what happens. ... If it makes sense for the organization, I know Theo's going to try to do something."

 

Francona said he's focused only on the players he's coaching, not on possible additions. Asked about one such player, Daniel Bard, Francona said he is trying to be careful about how much he uses the young reliever. "We really watch the workload," he said. "Bard won't pitch today, [Jonathan Papelbon] won't pitch today. ... We want our good pitchers pitching a lot. But we don't want them pitching too much."

 

Francona said J.D. Drew came up to him about five minutes before Tuesday...

Schilling: Lackey's reaction surprising

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to discuss his video game company's controversial move to Rhode Island. Schilling also weighed in on the Red Sox, saying of the Sox at the trade deadline: "They're in a seven-day window in which three wins in a row can change everybody's perspective."

 

Asked about John Lackey's reaction to getting booed by fans of his former team Tuesday night in Anaheim, Schilling replied: "I don't know why he'd be offended. Listen, I was a part of two world championship teams here, and there's a lot of people in this state who hate me. ... This is a business. I was kind of surprised by that, because I assumed Lack was a guy who was like, 'Oh, whatever.' A lot of times when we leave places, we tend to value our contributions a lot more than other people."

 

Schilling also discussed the Jacoby Ellsbury injury situation and...
