Farrell: No knowledge of Daisuke injury

Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell was a guest of the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon. Asked about Daisuke Matsuzaka's lower body discomfort the pitcher referenced following Thursday night's loss, Farrell said: "That's the first that we had heard about it. So I don't have any news to give you on that." Farrell later reiterated that Matsuzaka did not mention anything about a problem during the game.

 

Farrell talked about issues with Victor Martinez' game-calling, noting that Martinez has worked well with Clay Buchholz, Jon Lester and Tim Wakefield. Farrell said he expects improved communication the next time Martinez catches Matsuzaka.

 

"If that combination pairs up, which at some point it inevitably will, we know there's a change in the way they have gone about their communication before the start, and in-game as well," Farrell said.

 

Farrell said Josh Beckett has been...

Interesting facts about Game 6 refs

The officials assigned to referee Game 6 of the Celtics-Magic series are Ken Mauer, Monty McCutchen and Mike Callahan. The consensus seems to be that this crew is one that will benefit the Celtics' style of play. We dug a little deeper to find out more about these referees and learned some interesting facts. For example, Mauer is the uncle of baseball star Joe Mauer. And Callahan is a graduate of the same Philadelphia-area high school as disgraced former referee Tim Donaghy — the same Donaghy who told Dennis & Callahan producer Steve Ciaccio Friday morning that "Orlando should dust off their golf clubs" when informed of the Game 6 crew.

Mannix on D&H: Game 6 refs good for C's

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning to talk about the Celtics-Magic series. Mannix said the officiating crew assigned to Game 6 — Mike Callahan, Monty McCutchen and Ken Mauer — appears to be one that will help Boston's cause. "It will be a liberally called game," Mannix said. "Just based on the names and what you're saying, I think that favors Boston. I think they're going to be able to get away with a little bit more physically against Dwight Howard and some other guys. That's a good trio, I think for the Celtics."

 

Looking back at Ed F. Rush's ejection of Kendrick Perkins in Game 5, Mannix said the blame needs to be passed around. "I believe Eddie made a bone-headed call, I believe he wouldn't have made that call if he remembered that Perkins had one technical foul, but I've got to slap some responsibility on Kendrick Perkins, too," Mannix said. "...
