Lester could go on short rest in finale

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox will stay on turn for their three-game series against the Yankees this weekend following Friday night's rainout. Jon Lester, initially scheduled to pitch on Friday night, will come back and start on Saturday afternoon. Tim Wakefield, originally scheduled to pitch Saturday, will instead pitch in Sunday's double header, as will John Lackey.

Lester had been in line to pitch, if needed, against the Orioles in Baltimore on the last day of the season on Wednesday if the Sox had not yet clinched a postseason berth. While he would no longer be able to pitch on a normal schedule of four or five days' rest, the Sox would still be open to having him pitch the final game of the regular season, if needed, on just three days' rest.

"[The rainout] doesn’t preclude us from bringing [Lester] back [on short rest]," said Sox manager Terry Francona. "Hopefully we won’t need to do that. But, you’re getting a...

Theo: 'No disconnect' with Francona

NEW YORK -- Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein addressed a report of a division between himself and manager Terry Francona before the Sox opened a three-game series with the Yankees. "This is not a soap opera," Epstein said. "It's a team that hasn't played well."

He also stated plainly, "There's no disconnect between me and Tito."

The Red Sox have lost 16 of their last game 21 games and have seen their once-comfortable lead in the playoff chase reduced to two games over the Rays and three over the Angels.

"It's what happens after you're knocked on your ass," Epstein said. "We're on our ass again now. It's what happens next that matters."

Francona: 'Disrespectful' to worry about job

NEW YORK -- Amid talk of a disconnect between Red Sox manager Terry Francona and the team's front office, Francona said, "It would be disrespectful for me to spend any waking moment thinking about my job situation."

He added that the organization has a responsibility to have the right guy, and that while he cares a lot about his job, he's focused on how the team is performing. The Red Sox have lost 16 of 21 games this month and seen their wild card lead shrink to two games heading into their game Friday night against the Yankees.

Lackey to start Sunday against Yankees

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox have tabbed John Lackey to start the Sunday finale of their series with the Yankees. Lackey will be working on five days rest, but he is coming off an outing in which he gave up eight runs and 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The starter's identity had been undecided heading into the series, but manager Terry Francona went with Lackey instead of inserting reliever Alfredo Aceves into the rotation. 

"I think starting Lackey is the right thing to do," Fracona said. He added that he preferred Aceves to remain in the bullpen where he can be used as in several different roles.
