Ellsbury leaves with shoulder injury

Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury left Friday's game after the bottom of the fourth inning due to an injury incurred while trying to break up a double play.

Ellsbury, on first after an RBI single that put the Sox up, 4-1, with one out, was running on a full-count pitch to Dustin Pedroia. Shortstop Reid Brignac, moving to cover second with the pitch, was in perfect position to field a smash up the middle by Pedroia. Ellsbury arrived at second just after Brignac, and slid hard into the bag and the shortstop, a maneuver that did not prevent Brignac from completing the double play. After the encounter at second, Ellsbury appeared to be reaching for his right shoulder. After being examined by a Red Sox trainer, he left the field holding his arm pinned to his chest.

Ellsbury, the runner-up in AL MVP voting in 2011, was amidst his second multi-hit game of the year, having gone 2-for-3 with a double, a run and an RBI. He was replaced in the Sox lineup...

Maddon: 'Don't have [show] in Tampa Bay'

 

Speaking prior to his team's game against the Red Sox Friday afternoon at Fenway Park, Rays manager Joe Maddon laughed when asked if he could imagine having a weekly radio show in another city other than the one his team plays in. "I don't even have one in our own city," he said. "I don't have one in Tampa Bay."

The question was asked due to the controversy surrounding Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine's weekly appearance on a New York sports radio station. 

Maddon said if he was to start a radio show, it would most likely be in his hometown of Hazleton, Penn. "I could have one on WAZL, the mighty 1490," he said. "That's the place I would do it."

Maddon also addressed the notion that former Rays' catcher Kelly Shoppach might give the Red Sox advantage, carrying knowledge of his old team. It was one of the reasons Valentine said Shoppach got the nod in the starting lineup Friday.

Krejci misses practice, will play Game 2
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center David Krejci did not practice Friday, a day after he was hit in the back with a pane of glass following Chris Kelly's game-winning goal in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Krejci said he was not tested for a concussion, and that he will play in Game 2 Saturday despite some neck pain. 

"I've got a little sore neck, but other than that I'm good and I'll play tomorrow," he said.

Krejci, who led all players with 12 goals and 23 points last postseason, was celebrating with his teammates in the Washington zone when the glass fell on him. 

"I guess fans got kind of carried away from the Kels goal, and it just happened," he said. "Glass fell." 

Added Krejci: "I looked, like 'What happened?' because I didn't expect that, so I looked at what happened. Then I got up, skated away, and that's about it."

Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the practice that...

Lucchino on M&M: 'Foolish' to panic over Sox

Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino stopped by for a visit with Mut & Merloni Friday before the Red Sox' home opener and said it's important to put the team's 1-5 start in perspective.

"Perspective, by the way, should be the key word for what we talk about today," he said. "Six games, my gracious. We've been around the game long enough, all of us here, to know better. It's hard to control your emotions and to control your emotional reactions to tough losses, and some of them have been tough losses. But we should be smart enough, we should be experienced enough to know what a small sample we have and how foolish it would be to extrapolate too far, too much from that.

Added Lucchino: "It's unfortunate that it happens right out of the gate. Everyone wants a better start than that. But let's cool our jets a little until we get a little more data and a little more meaningful results."

Lucchino acknowledged that...
