A pregame interview with Terry Francona
Manager discusses the lineup and outlook for Game 3
If I read correctly, you were thinking about Byrd coming in in the 12th inning the other night, and if so the question is what is the criteria to determine when someone is going to come in in a game like that, a guy that's got to pitch until breakfast?TERRY FRANCONA: Well, the fact that he has the ability, as you kind of said, to pitch until breakfast, and Timlin would not have that ability, nor would it be fair. So you take the guy that's shorter depending on how the inning went. We may have tried to tried to send him back out for part of the next inning.
