Tito: Possibility Buchholz pitches this season

Speaking before his team's game with the Indians Tuesday afternoon, Red Sox manager Terry Francona explained that Clay Buchholz -- who has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in the L2 portion of his back (part of the lumbar vertebrae) -- still has a chance of pitching again this season, although no timetable has been presented.

"It hasn't been ruled out," Francona said. "I don't know. If you see him pitch, he's OK. We'll see."

The manager explained that the diagnosis of the stress fracture was initially identified after Buchholz failed to respond favorably a day after throwing a bullpen session July 25. The injury was then confirmed during a visit to back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles.

Francona noted that the symptoms are improving, and the injury is stable -- meaning it is expected to heal on its own. Buchholz will go through a five-step rehabilitation program, progressing as the symptoms allow. ...

Dungy: I wouldn't want Haynesworth
By: DJ Bean

Former Colts head coach Tony Dungy said Tuesday on the Dan Patrick Show that given what he saw when coaching against Albert Haynseworth, he would have chosen against acquiring the defensive tackle had the opportunity presented itself.

“I would not, no,” Dungy said. “I’ve seen Albert Haynesworth, and I’ve seen those great years he has when he’s got something to prove and he’s trying to make money. But I’ve also — we played against Albert Haynesworth in Indianapolis when he really wasn’t playing hard.”

Dungy praised Patriots coach Bill Belichick for his ability to motivate players with questionable pasts, and felt that Haynesworth could change because of Belichick.

“They have a great track record of doing that with Corey Dillon and Randy Moss and getting years out of guys when no one else could, so we’ll see," Dungy said. "I would bet on Belichick with...

"It's obviously been a long road for me. I'm still suffering with a lot of daily issues, right now it's been a tough go," Savard told reporters. "I'm just trying to get through and not worry about hockey right now, just worry about my health because I have three young kids and they're important to me."

"Mornings have been tough. When I get up in the morning I'm a little foggy sometimes," Savard continued. "But as the day wears on I'm pretty good. Hot sun is tough. I try to stay in the shade and stuff like that and pop the odd Advil...
