Remy on D&C: Reddick deserves to play

NESN color commentator Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk Red Sox.

Remy called Felix Hernandez, the Mariners’ starting pitcher Friday night, “one of the top pitchers in all of baseball.”

“If he’s on his game, it could be a very tough night for Red Sox hitters,” Remy said.

Remy said that John Lackey, Hernandez’s opponent, is trying to pitch with consistency and string together multiple quality starts.

“He’s facing a club tonight in Seattle that’s a poor offensive ball club, so hopefully that works in the Red Sox’ favor,” Remy said.

Remy also said that, based on his recent play, Josh Reddick should continue to play every day.

“You hate to sit veterans like [J.D.] Drew, but there comes a time when you have to go for the production,” Remy said. “The production right now is with...

Bard on Big Show: Open to changing roles

Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard joined The Big Show on Friday with Michael Holley and Rob Bradford, sitting in for Glenn Ordway. Bard said that he was open to any role that might present itself in the future, whether it's closing, starting or continuing as the team's set-up man, but that he wasn't worried about the future yet.

"I'm a pitcher. I don't see myself as locked into any one role," Bard said. "Right now I'm a middle reliever, I'm just going to be the best one I can be. If that means pitching in a different role down the road, whether that's pitching the ninth inning or pitching the first inning, I'm open to it."

Bard was asked if he had considered a scenario where he would start next season if pending free agent Jonathan Papelbon returns. Bard said that he would consider his options when they present themselves. "I'll address that situation if it comes next year. It's too tough, too many factors that are...

Mashup: Gretzky's son signs with Cubs

Trevor Gretzky, son of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, signed with the Cubs after deciding to pass up an offer to play baseball at San Diego State. The younger Gretkzy, who played high school baseball and football in Southern California, is a 6-foot-4, 180-pounder who was selected in the seventh round of the June draft.

San Diego State coach (and former Padres star) Tony Gwynn said he had an idea he might lose Gretzky to the pros. “Wayne mentioned how he started his pro career as a 17-year-old, how if you work hard enough you can make it,” Gwynn said. “The father is a nice guy. He totally gets it, understands the pro game. And the son is very mature.”

NFLPA: No vote on owners' proposal

After a conference call late Thursday night involving NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith and 32 player reps that lasted just over 90 minutes, the NFLPA ultimately decided not to vote on the proposal that was given to the players earlier in the day by the owners.

The initial proposal, which was ratified by the owners by a vote of 31-0 after a day of meetings in Atlanta, was derided by many players late Thursday night as a bully tactic designed to force them to agree to a deal they either hadn’t yet seen or had the chance to ask questions about. In addition, NFLPA officials insisted that many of the points of the deal that was agreed on by the owners remain unresolved, a point Smith hit on in a pre-call e-mail that he sent to players:

“As you know the Owners have ratified their proposal to settle our differences. It is my understanding they are forwarding it to us. As you may have heard they apparently approved a supplemental...
