Bedard scheduled to start Tuesday

Erik Bedard is set to start this Tuesday against the Baltimore Orioles, Terry Francona announced in his pre-game press conference on Sunday. Bedard has not pitched since Sept. 3, as he has been held out with an injured lat, as well as pain in the right knee.

“There was some thought to pitching Bedard the first game on [Monday],” Francona said. “But we really wanted to talk to him a little more and see if another day after throwing outside would be to his benefit, which he thought it was. That's kind of why we are waiting.”

Bedard threw his first bullpen session Saturday and felt no discomfort in either the lat or the knee. Since being traded to the Red Sox on July 31, Bedard is 1-2 with a 3.66 ERA in six games.

When asked if Bedard will give the Red Sox a normal start on Tuesday, Francona said that the left-hander will likely will be pulled earlier than he normally would.

“Normal as in getting people out...

Gonzalez noncommittal about sore shoudler

After the Red Sox' 4-3 loss to the Rays Saturday, Adrian Gonzalez was asked about the report from FoxSports.com that the first baseman's right shoulder was "weak, tired," and wasn't allowing him to take pre-game batting practice prior to the game.

"It's fine," Gonzalez said. "It's the end of the year."

The report by Ken Rosenthal came in the form of a tweet and said, "AGon told me surgically repaired right shoulder weak, tired this late in season. Costing him oppo power. Last HR to LF: 8/25."

Gonzalez finished Saturday going 0-for-2 with two walk and a pair of strikeouts. In the series' three games he is 4-for-24 (.167) with two home runs and seven walks. The Sox' No. 3 hitter attributed both the offensive struggles of the team and himself to chasing pitches out of the strike zone. According to BaseballAnalytics.org, seven of the 13 balls...

Hall of Famer Dave Gavitt dies at 73

Dave Gavitt, who served as executive vice president and chief operating officer for the Celtics from 1990-94, died at the age of 73 in his native Rhode Island after a long illness on Friday night, his family said. Gavitt's legacy runs much deeper than his brief tenure with the Celtics and touches on all corners of the basketball world. He was elected to the sport's Hall of Fame in 2006.

Gavitt coached Providence College to the Final Four in 1973 with a team that included Marvin Barnes and Ernie DiGregorio. He is best known for helping create the Big East conference and serving as commissioner in 1979. Gavitt aligned the conference with ESPN, which played a pivotal role in it becoming one of the country's top basketball conferences, and moved the post-season tournament to Madison Square Garden. 

He was selected to coach the United States in the 1980 Olympics, but the U.S. boycotted the games that were held in the former Soviet Union. Gavitt...

Maddon: 'We do have a bunch of tough guys'

Outspoken Rays manager Joe Maddon was at it again after Saturday's 4-3 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. He said the win on national TV proves his team can bounce back from a frustrating loss on Friday night and shows his team has the character it takes to compete for the American League wild card with the Red Sox and eventually overtake them. 

"Absolutely," Maddon said. "That, I think, validates by what I've thought, and that is we have a bunch of tough guys, that we're not intimidated by the opposition or the venue. And that's important. When you're playing at this time of year for all the marbles, you can't be intimidated by opposition or venue. 

"I've said it before, I think being in the AL East and playing in Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium and the new Yankee Stadium has helped us overcome the jitters that maybe some other groups may have. So, in a perverse way, this has worked out well for us, playing in this...

Lester: 'This isn't our first go-round at this'

After the Red Sox' 4-3 loss to the Rays -- cutting Terry Francona's team's Wild Card lead over the Rays to three games -- Sox starter Jon Lester explained there is no panic among his team.

"This isn't our first go-round at this," Lester said. "We have plenty of guys in that clubhouse that have been here, gone to the postseason, gone to the World Series. This isn't like it's all new to everybody and we're just trying to get through it. I don't think anybody's pressing.

"It's easier when you're coming from behind than it is where we're at. I think that's probably the biggest thing because they have no pressure. We're the ones that need to play well. You know what, the past three nights I think we have but they've played better two out of three. We'll just keep grinding it out. We still have how many games left? Twelve, 13, somewhere in there? We've got a long way to go still. Like I said, keep grinding it out. It's a cliche, but...
