Rondo still sick, will start

Rajon Rondo was still having trouble keeping food down this morning, but he did participate in the team's shoot around and he is expected to start tonight in Game 1 of the Celtics playoff series with the Heat. "I'm hoping Rondo's going to be OK," Doc Rivers said. "A low energy Rondo is not a good thing for us."

Papelbon's wife has baby, closer out tonight
By: DJ Bean

Ashley Papelbon gave birth to the couple's second child Saturday, meaning closer Jonathan Papelbon is unavailable for either of tonight's games between the Red Sox and Rays. Daniel Bard will continue the first game, currently tied 1-1, should the Red Sox not score in the bottom of the ninth.

 

The newborn Gunner Papelbon weighs 8 pounds, 8 ounces and is 21.5 inches. For more Red Sox news check out the Full Count blog.

Red Sox pre-game notes
By: DJ Bean

- Terry Francona confirmed prior to the conclusion of Friday night's game that Mike Cameron, who has not played since Wednesday, will return to the lineup in the second game. Cameron missed time due to a kidney stone, which has since passed. 

 

- Francona talked about the Rays' incessant base-stealing against Red Sox, saying "There's going to be guys like (Carl) Crawford -- some guys you can't stop. If we stop the guys we're supposed to stop, we're going to be OK."

 

- Should the Sox not score in the bottom of the ninth, Jonathan Papelbon will continue the game if he is available. In case he isn't -- a likelihood given that his wife is expecting the couple's second child today -- Daniel Bard will be called upon. 

 

- Francona defended David Ortiz, saying, "He's still getting into deep counts. I think there are some times he's still in between a little bit."

Ellsbury could return by mid-week
By: DJ Bean

Jacoby Ellsbury took 25 swings and threw the ball today in what Terry Francona called "by far his best day." Francona noted that swinging the bat was still the most painful part of Ellsbury's recovery and the left fielder admitted that he is still getting a sharp pain with deep breaths.

 

"I'm pretty happy with how today went," Ellsbury said, adding that he'd "like to hope [the middle of the week] would be a reasonable time" to return.

 

Ellsbury hasn't played since colliding with Adrian Beltre last Sunday in Kansas City. For more on the Red Sox, check the Full Count blog.

Papelbon or Bard to complete first game
By: DJ Bean

Terry Francona said prior to the completion of Friday night's 1-1 game with the Rays that the team's preference is for Jonathan Papelbon, who pitched the ninth inning, to remain in the game. The situation is complicated by the fact that he and his wife are expecting their second child today. If Papelbon is unavailable, Daniel Bard will get the call.
