Farrell Fires Warning Shot After 'Very Obvious' Cheap Shot...
Sox pitching coach John Farrell on WEEI's Dale and Holley Show talking about possible retaliation: "Our guys for one have each others backs and they're certainly be supportive if a situation like that were to arise. Speaking specifically about last night, he [Chamberlain] strikes out 12 guys, doesn't seem to have too many command issues, and if there was a purpose or an intent to throw up and in, or even if the intent was further than that, to send a clear-cut message, you can disguise it a little bit more than making it very obvious with the first pitch in the middle of the back to Jason Bay. So, those things aren't forgotten, we know that there's a history there between the pitcher in New York and our guys here, so not to say that he was specifically out to do that, but I think history speaks for itself, and we've got a number of games left with these guys."
