Gammons: Lowrie 'cynical' about Sox doctors

MLB Network and NESN analyst Peter Gammons made his weekly appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday morning, shortly before the Red Sox and Padres were scheduled to start their series finale at Fenway.

There has been speculation that Adrian Gonzalez will make an appearance in the outfield during the upcoming nine-game interleague road trip so that David Ortiz can continue to see regular at-bats. Gammons said it might happen, but it's unlikely to occur very often.

"I think [Terry Francona] might use Gonzalez for a couple of games, maybe one in left field in Philadelphia, one in left field in Houston, which are both short," Gammons said. "Otherwise, I don't think they'll get too fancy. I really don't. I think they'll rely on their pitching and get by. It's tough. They're both in the top five offensive players in the American League, but as long as baseball plays by two different rules, this is one of the things you have to...

Krstic signs with Russian team

Nenad Krstic has signed a two-year contract with CSKA Moscow, according to a press release from his agents. While Krstic technically is under contract with the Celtics until the end of the month, this deal has been rumored for the last month.

Team president Danny Ainge had indicated a willingness to try to re-sign the center, and his departure leaves them with an uncertian frontcourt behind Kevin Garnett and Jermaine O'Neal. Glen Davis is an unrestricted free agent, and Ainge will need to fill multliple spots up front.

Roberts on D&C: Nothing compares to Boston

Padres coach and former Red Sox outfielder Dave Roberts joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, prior to the third game of San Diego's interleague series with the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

Roberts was a part of the Red Sox' 2004 World Series championship team, and he said he never had a similar experience during his major league career. "No, I haven't," he said. "And I played on some very good teams, a lot of fun teams with some good guys and some nice ballplayers. But as far as the atmosphere here every single night and the group that we had and what we accomplished, it doesn't compare."

Roberts continues to maintain an optimistic approach despite the Padres' slow start this season.

"Obviously, everyone knows that it's a different market, San Diego and Boston," he said. "But we're going to go out there and keep playing and try to play the game the right way and see what happens after 162...

Mannix on D&C: Ainge explored Rondo trade

Sports Illustrated NBA writer Chris Mannix checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the Celtics and Thursday's NBA draft.

Mannix said Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge will not shy away from dealing any player in order to avoid a slow descent into mediocrity, and he noted that even the team's young star, Rajon Rondo, has been the subject of trade talks in the recent past.

"I think he's talking about moving everybody. I really do," Mannix said of Ainge. "I've had conversations with different people around the league; I would throw Rajon Rondo on that list as well. … He has explored dealing Rajon Rondo in the past. He has talked to other GMs about him in the past. I'm not saying he's been willing to pull the trigger in the past, but Rajon Rondo has been on the table in the past year or so.

"This is just something that Danny does. He's not afraid to make the...
