On the final days of Nomar in Boston: "The next day, after [a July 24 meeting] ... I got a phone call from Theo, who said that he had talked to Arn, who said that prior to that meeting he had to talk Nomar out of demanding a trade. We knew from that that he didn't want to be here."
On Nomar's alleged assertion that he'd have to miss a significant amount of time due to his heel injury: "I was in my office in Fenway Park when Theo called and said, 'You'd better come down here; I want you to hear something.' I went down to his office and he put the manager on the phone. I heard what I also read [later] in the newspapers, directly from the manager."
