Francona on D&H: Bay, Lackey, Gonzalez, more

Red Sox manager Terry Francona went on Dale & Holley on Wednesday to take calls and questions about his job and the shape of the Red Sox going forward. He discussed the 2010 coaching staff, free agents such as Jason Bay, Alex Gonzalez and Angels pitcher John Lackey, the role for Jason Varitek, and more.
 
Among the points that were discussed:

Belichick on Rex: He'll have Jets ready

 

FOXBORO  --  Bill Belichick isn't one to show emotions publicly so it was with some interest that he didn't flatly deny ever shedding tears in front of his team the way this Sunday's counterpart Rex Ryan reportedly did on Monday, following New York's heartbreaking loss to the Jaguars. "I'm sure that Rex will have them ready, which he does," Belichick said. "He certainly had them ready in our first game and they played well against us.  I've coached 35 years so I've probably covered most all the bases. I think I swore once, too."

Brady:'Psychologically' trying week

FOXBORO  --  Tom Brady wants to focus on the New York Jets, the Patriots' opponent this Sunday at Gillette Stadium. But he admitted that the team needs to put Sunday night's loss in the past. "I think it’s tough, you lose those games and emotionally you’re pretty drained," he admitted Wednesday. "It’s disappointing for everybody but"the reality is that there are a lot of games left for us. We all understand that. Physically, it's pretty demanding. Psychologically, weeks like this, it's pretty demanding. You try to convey a message and our coach always conveys a message of truth, and I think we've always found a way to respond to that."
