Francona: Lackey to DL for elbow, not head

Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined The Big Show Wednesday afternoon for his weekly discussion about the status of his team.

The Red Sox have heated up and finally pushed their record over .500, but Francona is hesitant to put too much stock in the past week.

"I think you've got to be a little careful and use some perspective," he said. "You can break it down into so many different things. Whether it was the 0-6 start or the 2-11 start. Or you can turn around and go, well, OK, after the 2-11 start, we've got the second-best record in baseball.

"So, that's why I guess I always come back to our record is what it is, and that's what we go by. You get too caught up in how things have gone the last four or five days, and that's no good. It's a long grind."

On the negative side, John Lackey was placed on the disabled list after struggling on the mound and then making a comment to the media about how things in his...

V-Mart: 'We did everything' to return to Sox

With his first appearance at Fenway Park as an opponent since May 7, 2009 coming in Wednesday night’s game between the Red Sox and Tigers, Victor Martinez was allowed time to pause and reflect on his time in Boston. Even though he didn’t sign as a free agent in the offseason – Boston was offering three years/$36 million or four years/$42 million – Martinez, who signed with Detroit for four years/$50 million, had plenty of praise for his former employers.

“I don’t have any words to describe it,” he said from the Detroit dugout. “By far, it’s been the best time of my career.

“My wife, my kids, my family and myself, we did everything we could to come back. But that’s just part of the game. It is what it is. We’ve got to move on.”

Before Wednesday’s game, managers for both sides gave their own positive thoughts on Martinez, the man and the player.

Daisuke likely out at least a month

Red Sox Medical Director Dr. Tom Gill issued the following statement Wednesday afternoon in regards to right-handed pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka: “Daisuke experienced tightness in his elbow during his last start. His examination is consistent with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, and strain to his common flexor mass. An MRI was obtained which confirmed these exam findings. He will be re-examined in two weeks.”

After the statement, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Matsuzaka won't throw at least until his exam in two weeks, and added that it’s “probably ambitious he will throw then.” He added that the Sox are somewhat relieved to have diagnosed the injury at a time when it remains “manageable,” before getting more serious.

Forbes: Belichick now highest-paid pro coach

With the retirement of Lakers coach Phil Jackson, Patriots coach Bill Belichick is now the highest-paid coach in the four major professional sports, according to Forbes. The Patriots have never publicly disclosed Belichick's contract situation, but the magazine estimates Belichick takes home an annual salary of $7.5 million. Belichick edges out Seattle's Pete Carroll and Washington's Mike Shanahan, both of whom make an estimated $7 million annually, according to Forbes. (Doc Rivers also just joined the $7 million club — he inked a new deal with the Celtics earlier this week.)
