Aviles dealt again, this time to Indians

Former Red Sox infielder Mike Aviles was traded again, Saturday, just two weeks after being dealt from the Sox to the Blue Jays for manager John Farrell and pitcher David Carpenter. This time Aviles was shipped from the Jays to the Indians along with infielder/catcher Yan Gomes for pitcher Esmil Rogers.

The 27-year-old Rogers pitched in 67 games for the Rockies and Blue Jays last season, totaling a 4.69 ERA. The reliever is known as a hard-thrower, topping out at 99 mph in '12.

It is believed that Aviles could compete for the Indians' starting second base job, which was held by Jason Kipnis last season. The 25 year-old finished hitting .257 with a .714 OPS to go along with 14 home runs. Aviles could also back up shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.

Rondo: 'I've got to do a better job'

Rajon Rondo pointed to himself as one reason for the Celtics 0-2 start to the season. Rondo finished with 14 points and 11 assists but couldn't get his teammates into any consistent offensive rhythm for a second straight game as the Celtics lost their home opener, 99-88, to the Bucks Friday night at TD Garden.

"Just trust one another defensively," Rondo said when asked what's missing in the Celtics' game right now. "It starts with me. I've got to do a better job on the ball and go from there."

As was the case against the Heat, the Celtics were again beaten in transition throughout the game.

"I don't know [if we trust each other defensively]," said Rondo. "I mean, we can say we do, but on the court it shows, we're not pulling in weak side. But it's a lot of things. We've got to start from somewhere. The good thing about it is we could start [Saturday]."

The Celtics play the Wizards on Saturday...

Pierce: Others 'have to be ready to step up'

While stopping short of completely calling out his teammates, Paul Pierce hinted Friday night after a stunning 99-88 loss to the Bucks in the home opener that others on the team need to step up their play. Pierce went to the bench with six minutes left in the first quarter after his second foul. He returned to the bench after his third foul with just under five minutes left in the second quarter.

In the meantime, the Celtics fell behind by 16 points and trailed 46-30 at halftime. They never recovered in losing their second straight to start the season.

Pierce finished the first half with two points and missed all four shots from the field.  

"It was tough, kind of threw me out of rhythm," Pierce said of his foul trouble. "I was able to sub early and come back in early in the second quarter. But even when that happens, we have to have guys ready to step up. It really wasn't about me, it was about the way our team...

Flat footed: C's embarrassed in home opener

Brandon Jennings scored 21 points and dished out 13 assists to lead the Bucks to a stunning 99-88 win over the Celtics Friday night at TD Garden. With David Ortiz sitting courtside after agreeing to a two-year, $26 million contract extension with the Red Sox, the Celtics came out flat in their home opener. 

The 0-2 Celtics, who were booed loudly and often all night, were led by 15 points from Kevin Garnett while Rajon Rondo added 14 points and 11 assists. Paul Pierce missed his first six shots and finished 3-for-11 from the field with 11 points. 

The Celtics never found their rhythm in the first half, getting outscored 25-18 in the first quarter and 21-12 in the second. The Celtics made just 12 of 40 field goal attempts in the first half, including missing all six from long range. Pierce picked up three fouls in just under 10 minutes of action and took a seat while Rondo was held to just four points and three assists.

Ortiz on returning: 'It doesn't get any better'

After agreeding to a two-year, $26 million extension on Friday night with the Red Sox, David Ortiz celebrated with his wife Tiffany by sitting courtside at the Celtics home opener. 

He told reporters that he was very excited to be coming back to Boston, a place he's called home since joining the Red Sox in 2003. 

"Good, man. You all know I want to be back," Ortiz said. "I've been here for a while. It doesn't get any better."

Sources tell WEEI.com that Ortiz can make up to $4 million in incententives, making the contract potentially worth $30 million over the two years. 

Ortiz, who sat next to Kevin Garnett's wife and daughter, attended the Celtics game with no boot or crutches as he aims to fully heal from an Achilles injury that shortened his season to one game in September.
