“Beckett would come down the stairs from the dugout, walking through the corridor to the clubhouse and say, ‘It’s about that time’. Beckett was the instigator, but Lester and Lackey were right behind him... It was blatant and hard not to notice what was going on with all three guys leaving at once.” -- Channel 7 quoted one of the Red Sox employees as saying

'I Know Nothing! NOTHING!'

Sgt. Schultz Varitek Speaks: Knows Nothing of Clubhouse Issues

"That’s a personal feel because it still always comes down to us performing. He [Francona] can’t hit for us. He can’t make a pitch in the ninth inning for us. The only thing he can control is putting us in situations that allow you to be successful. That's Tito's personal opinion [not everyone was on the same page] and based on what was going on with him personally and maybe how he related to the team. The perception for him maybe could be that he couldn’t reach the team. But I didn't see him change." -- Varitek takes a not-so-thinly-veiled-shot at Tito
