"It's great. The timing is really good. We're enough into camp now where we'd like guys to kind of maybe almost have heavy legs. Play two or three in a row, have heavy legs. We've got a day off Thursday. We're going to select a group the next three days of probably five or six guys that will take BP and go home. So even though we're playing a lot of innings, we're not going to have them standing around. Then when that day off comes, it'll come at a perfect time, they can catch their breath and we'll go ahead and finish out the last 10 days of Spring Training." -- Francona on the timing of Sunday's split-squad games in Mesa and Scottsdale
