Francona on D&H: Ailing Doubront sent home
By: Jay Asser

Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined the Dale & Holley show on Wednesday for his weekly conversation and revealed that Felix Doubront was sent back to Boston due to suffering neck pain on his non-throwing side.

 

"On his non-pitching side of his neck in the front there he was having some pain," Francona said. "So, we actually decided because of last night to send him back to Boston today to get him looked at and figure out what's going on there to rule out some things. The good news is that it's not his pitching arm, in fact it's not his arm, it's his neck but it's on the other side and he was starting to grab at it a little bit so we kind of wanted him to get it looked at and we'll see what the word on it is."

 

Francona was asked about various controversial decisions in the Tampa Bay series, including J.D. Drew's catch on a sacrifice fly.

Remy on D&C: Sox have a lot to play for

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and said he doesn't believe the Sox have given up on the season yet. "Have they turned the page yet toward next year? No, they haven't done that yet," Remy said. "And the reason I say that is because there's too many guys on this team that have a lot to play for. They've got young guys that are trying to prove they're going to belong here at the beginning of next year, guys like [Ryan] Kalish. And they've got veteran guys who are playing for contracts. [Adrian] Beltre, [Victor] Martinez, [David] Ortiz — all these guys are playing for contracts."

 

Josh Beckett has come under fire for his poor season, but Remy is optimistic that he can bounce back, especially after Tuesday night's solid outing, "I don't think the guy's done," Remy said. "I think there's plenty left in the tank."

Mashup: Another columnist suspended

Washington Post columnist Mike Wise was suspended for a month for knowingly sending out a false tweet indicating that Ben Roethlisberger's NFL suspension had been reduced to five games, a "joke" Wise says he made to show how far journalism standards have fallen but one that blew up in his face. On his radio show, Wise apologized for his actions and accepted his punishment. It's been a rough week for national columnists, with Wise's embarrassing behavior coming on the heels of Jay Mariotti's misadventures that led to his national ridicule. Read more about that story, plus get updates on Manny Ramirez' strange introductory press conference with the White Sox and Roger Clemens' South Carolina golf outing, at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Report: NFL investigating Spikes tape

The NFL is looking into a sexually explicit video of Patriots rookie linebacker Brandon Spikes and a woman that has been posted on the Internet, according to ESPN. The video was posted earlier this week, and in an e-mail to WEEI.com on Tuesday, Spikes’ agent, Terry Watson, indicated that the rookie out of Florida is looking to move past the incident. “Brandon is showing himself to be a high-character guy in the Boston community and has the promise of being a very good player,” wrote Watson. The 22-year-old Spikes, who was taken in the second round of the 2010 draft by the Patriots, has started all three preseason games at inside linebacker for the Patriots and has 18 tackles.

Red Sox grant Hermida outright release

The Red Sox released outfielder Jeremy Hermida Tuesday night. The move came after the team decided not to promote Hermida when the roster expands on Sept. 1. The 26-year-old had been playing with Triple-A Pawtucket since accepting an assignment to the minors. He had cleared waivers following being designated for assignment by the Sox on July 31.

 

Hermida was hitting .288 with two homers for Pawtucket after totaling a .203 average with five home runs in 52 games with the Red Sox. The outfielder struggled in his final days with the Sox, going 2-for-20 after returning off the disabled list (ribs).

 

The Red Sox originally acquired Hermida from the Florida Marlins on Nov. 5, 2009, for minor leaguers Jose Alvarez and Hunter Jones. Alvarez is 9-3 with a 3.68 ERA, striking out 107 and walking 30 for the Single A Greensboro Grasshoppers, while Jones was 0-5 with a 4.17 ERA for the Triple-A New Orleans Zephyrs before being released...
