Lucchino: Ortiz has right to question media

Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, and much of the interview was spent discussing David Ortiz. Asked if the media has been unfair to Ortiz this season, Lucchino said: "He may feel that way, but I think that's human nature. He recognizes that he got off to a bad start. But I do think he feels -- he said so, he said as much -- that there was greater emphasis on his lack of productivity and not sufficient emphasis on other players perhaps, or the team's success. ... I think that there is a question of balance, a question of emphasis, that David had a right to raise being human like the rest of us. I'm so glad that's in our rear-view mirror now."

 

A recent story by ESPN's Howard Bryant quoted an unidentified Red Sox front office source as saying members of ownership, in its defense of Ortiz following last year's steroid situation, "embarrassed themselves in defending David....

Scutaro: Injury goes back to spring training

According to shortstop Marco Scutaro, the injury (tennis elbow) to his left arm first cropped up in spring training and has been bothering him throughout the season. After receiving a cortisone shot Thursday, Scutaro said he expects to be ready to play in the series opener between the Phillies and Red Sox Friday night in Philadelphia. "I had no strength, I can't grip. I can't even lift the bat. Even when I close my glove," he said. "Unless I take a pill, like an anti-flam, no chance. It's mostly to hit.

 

"It was sore last night from the shot but today feels better. They said after a couple of days the medicine stops working. I guess it's from too much swinging. It was there for like a month and wasn't getting any better.

 

Scutaro, who said he had something similar last season but in his right elbow, has been hit on the elbow with pitches on two occasions. Ironically, the day before the first game he was...
