Cherington: Ortiz 'productive and durable'
By: DJ Bean

In a press conference to announce David Ortiz' two-year deal, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said that the team's knowledge of Ortiz' Achilles injury and the lack of major injury history made the team comfortable with giving him a multiyear pact.

"As with any player, you've got to get to the bottom of the health and figure out what sort of risk is involved there, but our benefit is that we know David so well," Cherington said. "No. 1, we know how hard he's going to work to put himself in the best position to play and be healthy. Since we worked with him so well, we know what happened with the Achilles this year, and we feel in working with David to identify some things that we can do proactively to help him, and he's feeling a lot better now. 

"It's not a concern moving forward any more than it would be for any player. As we approached this, we looked at the body of work, the track record, and he's been incredibly...

Ortiz had 'no doubt' he'd get two-year deal
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said Monday that he knew the team was going to give him the multi-year deal he had been seeking when his last contract expired. Ortiz said the front office communicated well with him this season, making him "more confident walking into the offseason knowing that I was going to be back."

"I don't think there was any doubt," Ortiz said when asked about getting two years. "They approached me pretty well. Our negotiations this year were easier than ever. They knew what they were looking for. … It wasn't even a going back and forth type of situation. It was pretty much 'this is it' and I agreed with it."

Ortiz also said that the right achilles tendon injury that kept him out through the end of last season is doing better. 

"It's good," he said. "I'm moving forward pretty good. I already started doing leg exercises and stuff, and I'm feeling good."...

The Red Sox officially announced David Ortiz' two-year extension on Monday. The deal is worth $26 million and could reach $30 million if Ortiz reaches all of his incentives. 

“David Ortiz has made immeasurable contributions to the Red Sox for the past decade,” general manager Ben Cherington said in the release. “He is an historic figure, a beloved hero, and an important player as we build our team for 2013 and beyond.”  

In 90 games last season, Ortiz hit .318/.415/.611 with 23 homers and 60 RBI. He led the Red Sox in batting average.

Terry: C's bench 'not even close'

WALTHAM -- After watching the Wizards bench outscore the Celtics reserves 62-27 Saturday night in Boston's nail-biting 89-86 win in Washington, one of the key Celtics reserves admitted his frustration and said the second unit is doing everything it can to improve. 

"We're not even close to where we want to be," said Terry, who scored eight points in 18 minutes off the bench Saturday. "It's a work in progress. I'm going to stay optimistic. I'm going to score. I'm going to figure it out. Believe me when I tell you, I'm going to continue to shoot the ball and I'm going to take advantage of every opportunity."

Terry was just 2-for-8 from the floor on Saturday and is averaging 8.7 points in 25 minutes a game off the Boston bench in the first three games. 

"That's frustrating," Terry said of Boston's bench production. "But again, I take that squarely upon my shoulders and this is a new week. I'm...
