McAdam On Toucher & Rich: Middlebrooks Day-To-Day With Back Spasms

Thursday night was Terry Francona’s first visit to Fenway Park as a manager of another team since he and the Red Sox parted ways after the 2011 season. Francona brought his first-place Cleveland Indians to Boston and served the Sox a 12-3 lose in the first of a four game series.

Sean McAdam joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to talk about the return of Terry Francona to Fenway, the health of Will Middlebrooks and the performance of Jacoby Ellsbury.

After the first inning of Thursday night’s game fans were treated to a video that highlighted some of Francona’s best times with Boston. Did the former manager spend any time with upper management? Is this smaller market more enjoyable after managing in a city like Boston?

The guys then took some time to focus on things the Sox are currently dealing with. Will Middlebrooks left last night’s game with back spasms and this could put the Red Sox in a difficult spot. Do the Sox have an option to rest him for some time?

They also discussed Jacoby Ellsbury and his so-so performances. Is he hurting his stock in a contract year? Will he have to take a short deal in hopes of driving up his numbers and then cash in after that deal runs out?

Plus, what’s it like in the press box at a Red Sox game when the Bruins are playing big games?
