Ortiz still bitter over offseason treatment
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, the team's only All-Star this season, voiced some of his issues with the Red Sox and their upper management, a point made clear in a piece written by USA Today's Jorge L. Ortiz. In the story, the slugger suggested that he will not necessarily have an allegiance to the Sox on the open market.

Ortiz, a free agent after the season, made it clear in the piece that he has an issue with the Sox spending big on free agents but not on their longest-tenured player. 

"If you go crazy and give contracts to whoever comes along despite not knowing how they're going to do, then you don't give me my due consideration, even though I do my thing every year, [expletive] that," Ortiz said. "I'm going to be open to anything. My mentality is not going to be, 'I...

Mashup: Youk delivers winner for White Sox

Kevin Youkilis is feeling right at home in Chicago. One day after homering in his first at-bat in his U.S. Cellular Field debut as a member of the White Sox, the former Red Sox third baseman hit a walk-off single in the 10th inning Wednesday for a 5-4 victory over the Rangers.

"I'm having a great time with this team," said Youkilis, who is 5-for-10 with five RBIs the last two days and is hitting .305 with nine RBIs since being traded from Boston. "It's always a lot more fun when you do stuff like that."

Youkilis was down 0-2 to Rangers reliever Mike Adams before extending the at-bat to nine pitches and ending it with a single over the shortstop's head that scored Alejandro De Aza.

"For me, you try to describe to people the importance of Youk coming over. That at-bat really describes it the best, he is 0-2, he is grinding and it's just continuous and that is the kind of stuff is infectious throughout the lineup for us...

Jason Terry: Ray Allen return 'wouldn't hurt'

Jason Terry -- who has agreed to three-year deal with the Celtics worth just over $15 million -- told Fox Sports Florida Wednesday regarding Ray Allen's potential return to the Celts, "That certainly wouldn't hurt."

The 34-year-old Terry also talked to the network about his decision to join the Celtics. "I just love that they have a championship pedigree," he said. "And I think their point guard (Rajon Rondo) is the best in the business at controlling both ends of the floor. And they’ve got Hall of Famers."

A Celtics source told the Boston Herald Wednesday, "We're still going after Ray." (To learn more about the dynamic in regards to how the Celtics are approaching the remainder of the offseason, click here.)

Allen's agent Jim Tanner confirmed to the Herald that Allen...

Crawford, Ellsbury draw closer to returning

Rehabbing outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury (shoulder) and Carl Carl Crawford (elbow) both took steps toward returning to the Red Sox, Wednesday night, each joining the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs in their series opener against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

Crawford, who was coming off a four at-bat night with the Sea Dogs Tuesday night, notched a pair of singles while also flying out to left field and hitting into a 1-6-3 double play. Crawford is now a combined 5-for-20 with seven walks in seven combined games with the Sox' Gulf Coast League team and Portland.

"Right now I’m just trying to hit the ball where it’s pitched," Crawford told the Boston Herald. "Not trying to do too much. Last year, I got caught up in trying to do too much. This year, I’m just trying to take what the pitcher gives me."

Ellsbury was making his first appearance with Portland this season, coming away with a single in five at-bats. The...

Sox bats silent again as A's notch sweep

The Red Sox suffered a three-game sweep at the hands of the Athletics, dropping the teams' series finale Wednesday, 3-2, in Oakland. The loss finishes off a 2-5 road trip for the Sox, who totaled just 14 runs for the seven games.

The decisive run game in seventh inning, when Coco Crisp led off the frame with a triple against Sox starter Aaron Cook. After Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine replaced Cook for reliever Andrew Miller, Jemile Weeks singled to left to drive in Crisp with the game-winner.

Earning the win was Oakland reliever Grant Balfour, who pitched a perfect 1 2/3 innings in relief of A's starter A.J. Griffin. Griffin held the Red Sox to just two runs on three hits over his 6 1/3 inning. Ryan Cook pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his eighth save.

Aaron Cook turned in another solid start, giving up three runs on nine hits over six innings, finishing throwing 80 pitches (56 strikes).

The only Red Sox' offense came from David...
