Courant: Where's Wells? It's Anybody's Guess
Is Tito Ready to Bump Heads with Boomer?
"'It wasn't a one-on-one conversation,' Francona said Monday. 'We were in there with all the pitchers and I kind of explained to him because he wants to know what day he's pitching. I just kind of told him, I said, `David, as of the fourth of March, you wanted to be traded. Now all of a sudden you want to pitch second.' It's not going to happen.'"
"'He's going to have to be able to be a little flexible,' Francona said. 'That's all he has to do, just be a little flexible and we'll make this work. But again, if there's not flexibility on his part, too, we're probably going to bump heads a little bit.'"
