Lowrie to visit Yocum for 2nd opinion

Another Red Sox player is headed West to visit Dr. Lewis Yocum as Jed Lowrie will travel to Los Angeles this week to get a second opinion on his sore left shoulder. 

"Jed is going to leave [Tuesday], fly to LA and see Dr. Yocum on Wednesday," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "He'll have the pictures [taken] and he'll see him in person, which we feel like there's no reason for him not to go. He's not playing anyway so let's have him examined in person and that'll be good."

Daisuke Matsuzaka visited Dr. Yocum several weeks ago and received the second opinion that led to Matsuzaka undergoing "Tommy John" surgery on his right elbow. 

Lowrie went on the DL on Friday with a strain of his left shoulder, which significantly affects the switch-hitter's ability to bat right handed since it serves as the lead shoulder. Lowrie was batting a hefty .386 this year against left-handed pitching while batting just ....

Thornton on Big Show: VAN motivated B's
By: DJ Bean

Shawn Thornton of the Stanley Cup champion Bruins joined The Big Show Monday to discuss the team's championship run and the days that have followed winning the city's first Cup in 39 years. 

Thornton was among a group of B's players who brought the trophy to Foxwoods on Saturday night, and noted that because he isn't a champagne drinker, he might not be able to tell the difference between a cheap bottle and the $100,000 bottle he and teammates purchased. 

"I guess it tasted as good as champagne does," Thornton said. "I don't know. It tasted like champagne to me. They all taste the same."

The Bruins defeated the Canucks to win the Cup, edging out Vancouver in a seven-game series that ended with a 4-0 win at Rogers Arena. Throughout the series, Canucks players made comments about the Bruins, such as Roberto Luongo (among other players) and coach Alain Vigneault criticizing B's goalie Tim Thomas' positioning and...

Francona: 'We'll see' about A-Gon in OF

The annual dilemma about what to do with designated hitter David Ortiz in National League parks has a new twist this year. Terry Francona said he has approached first baseman Adrian Gonzalez about playing right field to allow Ortiz to play first since there is no DH in NL parks. 

"We've actually talked to him about that a little bit," Francona said before Monday's game with San Diego at Fenway. "I guess the best answer I can give you is, 'We'll see.' I'm glad he's willing to do it. I think it's admirable. I don't want David to sit nine straight games, that bothers me. I guess the best thing I can tell you is, 'We'll see.'" 

The biggest concern to Francona is not wanting Ortiz to get stale over the nine-game trip through Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Houston, starting this weekend at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. 

"Maybe a couple times just to get David [playing time] where he doesn't go 10 days without...

Glen Davis: 'Mentally, I wasn't ready'

MEDFORD -- Speaking after a team-sponsored charity appearance, free agent forward Glen Davis acknowledged his poor postseason and said that he wasn't mentally ready to play.

"I pride myself on playing good basketball, especially when you need it. Every postseason I’ve played tremendously good to the point where it was like, wow, and this [spring] it didn’t happen," Davis said. "Because I felt mentally I wasn’t ready and prepared enough for what was in front of me. It affected the way I played and that’s what I’ve been doing this offseason, concentrating on that and making sure postseasons like this don’t happen to me." 

With a potential lockout looming, Davis in limbo as he approaches free agency. He said that the thought of leaving Boston has "crossed my mind." Asked for what he was looking for in free agency, Davis said, "I can’t perform the way I need to perform if...

McDonald, Cameron to start vs. Padres

All eyes will be on the first basemen who will start opposite each other on Monday night, as former Padres star Adrian Gonzalez will be playing against San Diego for the first time since the blockbuster that sent him to the Red Sox in exchange for four players. One of the prospects traded by the Sox in the Gonzalez deal, Anthony Rizzo, will play his first game at Fenway Park as San Diego's first baseman.

With left-hander Wade LeBlanc on the hill for the Padres, Mike Cameron and Darnell McDonald will start in the outfield corners for the Red Sox. Meanwhile, with Andrew Miller set to make his Sox debut, Jason Varitek will be behind the plate to work with the left-hander.
