Harden: No hard feelings toward Sox

For a brief moment in time it looked like Oakland pitcher Rich Harden was heading to Boston in a trade-deadline deal that would have sent Lars Anderson and a player to be named later to the A's. Then suddenly, he wasn't. According to numerous reports, the Sox balked after looking at Harden's medical reports and decided to pursue a deal for Erik Bedard instead.

Harden said those few hours were a little surreal, but that he had no hard feelings toward the Sox. "Not at all," he said. "That's part of the game." Harden, who is set to be a free agent after this season, also said that the non-trade wouldn't stop him from considering Boston in the offseason.

Harden, who has made 10 trips to the disabled list during his career, understands that his medical history is always going to be a concern. "That's something that's always been an issue and I think it always will be," Harden said. "That question is always going to...

Crawford gets night off, Aviles in LF

Manager Terry Francona said he was playing it safe by sitting Carl Crawford for Friday night's series opener with the A's at Fenway Park, as Mike Aviles got the call to start in left field. 

"We're trying to give as many guys some time off as we can," Francona said. "There's only so much we can do. I thought Carl was actually cramping last night during the game. So with the late arrival and everything, I thought it would be a good day [for day off] because he's probably going to play both [Saturday]."  

Crawford had a very productive road trip, hitting eight games of the road trip, going 10-for-30 with two home runs, including a homer and five RBIs on Wednesday that matched a career high.  

The Red Sox lineup for Friday vs. the Athletics:

Ellsbury CF
Scuataro SS
Gonzalez 1B
Pedroia 2B
Ortiz DH
Lowrie 3B
Aviles LF
Saltalamacchia C
McDonald RF...
