Last quote by John Farrell

He's been swinging the bat well. There's some momentum with Travis, getting him up here. The fact is, we're probably looking at four left-handed starters over these next four series. Felt like this was an opportunity to add another right-handed bat.feedback

John Farrell quotes

The two teams are highly competitive. This hasn't been a one-incident situation. We are looking forward to playing a good hard brand of baseball and we know that there have been some pitches that got away and that's what precipitated the call today.feedback

Typically you don't see it that early, and they're going to determine there's intent immediately. Obviously, with what's being written about what's transpired in the first six games or so that we've played, D.J. felt like it was an appropriate call.feedback

I guess the best way to describe it is: I can confirm that there was a call and it happened for both clubs, to basically address the last two weeks and to say, Enough is enough.feedback

I feel like we've got to pick a spot here. And that's why getting everyone capable of defensive work, including Hanley, is important in that regard.feedback

This is a tough team to match up against. They're going to find a way to get their matchup with the alternating left-right in the lineup. I wouldn't say [the relievers] have exceeded what our internal expectations are, and yet we've not been with a full complement of guys that are on our roster.feedback

If Robby Scott [comes into the game], they've got [Javier] Baez waiting to hit for Jon Jay, and [that's] not a favorable matchup with the short porch in left here.feedback

In the moment, it looked like Ben was late getting to the bag on the back end of that double play. Bogey throws it, tries to lead him there, ends up being behind him. And then we end up throwing the ball around the ballpark.feedback

It was a quality workday for him. Accomplished what the plan was and that was for two simulated innings after he warmed up. Good intensity. So that was a good day for him.feedback

They're executing in every phase of the game. They are probably a little bit more aggressive on the basepaths this year with the personnel that they do have. Their pitching has been very steady, strong for that matter, particularly when you get to the bullpen. They come in playing with a lot of confidence. They are scoring well and they aren't giving up many either. They are playing well.feedback

Any conversation that might have been needed was had and we're on to this series upcoming. What's done is done.feedback

His importance to us speaks for itself. At this point it warrants a further look.feedback

There was legitimate concern in the moment it took place. But the fact that he still has the symptoms he does, we're going to rule everything out. His importance to us speaks for itself. And with any of our players, you get into a situation like this, you give it a 24-48 hour period to see how it responds. And at this point it warrants a further look.feedback

Clearly there is a difference in opinion in how that rule was interpreted and the slide. Bottom line, if that slide last night is not deemed an illegal slide, we should just get rid of the rule.feedback

The rule has three different components and we talked about those. Still, that was an extremely late slide and in my view, an illegal slide.feedback

He can understand the feeling of trying to protect our players. Fact is, we have a player who is not in the lineup tonight as a result of the slide. Basically, they said he received the throw as a first baseman. If that was the case, his left leg would have been the one extended toward the throw.feedback

It's worth the price of admission just to see him.feedback

I know for a fact that he thrives in the DH spot. That's probably his preference overall. He's not boycotting (first base), but I know where his preference lies. In conversations throughout the winter, once we acquired Mitch, the conversations throughout spring training, (Ramirez) understands how our roster is built. What's best for our team has him going to first base on occasion.feedback

He's going to need some time. Hopefully it's just the 10 days, we'll see.feedback

I feel a lot better. Feels like it's going in the right direction.feedback

It's hard to project right now. We'll take a progression similar to spring training. While we have some tentative plans for that progression, we're probably responding or addressing this as David responds to the work sessions. Thus far, it's been good.feedback

The four total walks and the base hit (in the eighth), obviously, are a difficult one here. We dramatically come back and take (the lead with) a big five-run eighth.feedback

There'll be a time in this season when you look to go to (closer Craig) Kimbrel for four outs, but not in Game 3.feedback

This hasn't been able to be contained from one certain group to another or a couple of guys. There's three different things that are going around -- one's a respiratory one, one's flu-like symptoms, and one is the full-blown flu.feedback

You love the way Chris Sale goes about his work.feedback

He's got a short track record, we know, but there's never been evidence of panic, even in two-strike situations. He sees the ball extremely well. He's got a true understanding of the strike zone. Pretty special young player.feedback

He's not stagnant in terms of the full range of motion he needs to throw the baseball.feedback

So we're at a 60-foot phase right now. But we don't have (a plan in which) there needs to be X number of sessions at 60 feet then we're going to progress. It was at the doctors' recommendation, do not put him on a structured throwing program, because it may be either too quick or too slow depending on how he feels. And a lot of what's driving this on daily throwing schedule is how David feels.feedback

I'd like to see him over here again before we get too much deeper in camp.feedback

It says he's not afraid of failure, and that's great for any athlete. Athletes are all going to become vulnerable in their performance at some point, and for who's been such a high profile in another sport come in and say, Hey, I'm willing to take a run at this,' I think it's a pretty cool thing. When you look at the raw power in BP, it's pretty evident. It says you've got some pretty good hand-eye coordination. (Baseball's) hard for a guy who plays every year. When you have that kind of gap, I think it's a window into the mindset that anything is possible. Why not take a run with it?feedback

It says he's not afraid of failure and I think that's great for any athlete. Athletes are all going to become vulnerable at some point and for a guy who's been such high-profile in another sport to say, You know what? Hey, I'm willing to take a run at this,' I think it's a pretty cool thing. We'll see how it plays out, but when you look at the raw power in BP it's pretty evident. Not to mention, when you're doing something else in another sport, it says you have some pretty good hand-eye coordination.feedback

I watched him take a round or two of BP. I don't know what it plays like at game speed.feedback

There's an edge about him, the way he goes about his work, [and] he's got tremendous physical ability to back that up. … You get the sense that the team, on the day he takes the mound, takes on that persona. It can be unique for players coming in the first year and going through an adjustment period, but he seems to be very well equipped to stay focused on the things he can control.feedback

I think every player we have has got a certain amount of scrutiny just because it's Boston. Independent of developments on our roster, health wise or other, Chris Sale is going to draw a lot of attention. Based on what we know of him, I think he'll handle this environment well.feedback

I was a little surprised to see the velocity he had in his first outing. In a way you kind of think it's a high number for this early in camp, but you can't tell a strong competitor to back off.feedback

But we also have to remain with some cautious optimism because he's in a shut-down period and it'll be great to see when he finally puts a ball in his hand and begins that process. Initially, that's really good news.feedback

A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago. We definitely feel it's a best-case scenario.feedback

A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago. The approach we're going to take with him is he'll receive medication and treatment in the next seven to 10 days. We'll re-evaluate him at that time.feedback

As we talked about him experiencing the type of forearm issue in spring training, it may be a little more intensified this year, but still, this is the spring training arm he goes through.feedback

A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago. The approach we're going to take with him is he'll receive medication and treatment in the next seven to 10 days. We'll re-evaluate him at that time. Even talking with David on his way up there, he felt with each passing hour he was becoming more free. As we talked about him experiencing the type of forearm issue in spring training, it may be a little more intensified this year, but still, this is the spring training arm he goes through. A very positive exam given the concern a couple days ago.feedback

He's gone through some soreness in the forearm/elbow area in previous spring trainings but this one has got a little bit more intensity to it.feedback

There's a surplus right now. But when you think about the high end of it, this is an exciting group.feedback

In between the lines, he pitches with an edge. His numbers and performance speak for themselves, but I think there is maybe a persona that he projects certainly across the field.feedback

And we really have been able to do that.feedback

Steve Olin was a teammate of mine when the boating accident in spring training took place. The emotions range from shock, disbelief to thinking about their families and the adjustments they're going to have to go through. And the pain and sorrow that they go through.feedback
