JaJuan Johnson: I just want to learn
By: DJ Bean

Celtics first-round pick JaJuan Johnson joined Dennis and Callahan Tuesday, discussing Boston and his upcoming rookie year. 

Given that the Celtics are a veteran team that hopes to compete for a title, the 27th overall pick may have a hard time finding regular minutes, something Johnson said he's ready to deal with.

"I don't expect too much," Johnson said. "Really, this year I just want to take in as much as I can from those older guys. Just learn from those guys and really just continue to get better as a player."

The 221-pound forward is trying to bulk up so he is better-suited to play forward in the NBA. Johnson said that it's a matter of diet, which he hopes to get straightened out in short order. 

"When I was back in Chicago, I had a chef, and he was cooking for me every day, pretty much helping me with calories, the amount of calories I needed to put in each day," he said. "Once I get...

Tazawa struggles in return to mound

Junichi Tazawa struggled in his return from Tommy John surgery Monday night, allowing six earned runs on three hits, two walks and a hit batsmen, recording just two outs in just 2/3 innings for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs. The 25-year-old righty also threw a wild pitch, allowing one of the New Britain runners to score.

Tazawa had been added to the 40-man roster earlier in the day, with Red Sox reliever Rich Hill being transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Tazawa was coming back from surgery performed April 6, 2010. He appeared in six games (starting four) with the Sox in '10, finishing with a 2-3 record and 7.46 ERA over 25 1/3 innings.

Papers show Dodgers owe Manny $21 million

According to documents submitted by the Dodgers in filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday, the team owes Manny Ramirez $21 million. The debt represents the unpaid amount of money left on the $45 million contract Ramirez worked under with Los Angeles.

Ramirez played the second half of the 2010 season with the White Sox before joining the Rays on a one-year, $2 million deal for this season. The outfielder's year -- and career -- came to a halt, however, when he tested positive performance-enhancing drugs.

Others owned money by the Dodgers include Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones ($11.1 million), White Sox outfielder Juan Pierre ($3.05)

Mashup: Avery wants gay marriage support

Rangers forward Sean Avery, who aggressively supported gay marriage in New York — a bill making gay marriage legal in the state was passed last week — now wants the league to get behind him. "It would be great for the NHL to take the lead among professional sports leagues in terms of social equality and justice and be out front and progressive regarding issues like this," he said.

As for the fact that he is one of the most disliked players in the league due to his obnoxious behavior yet now is campaigning for "social equality," Avery explained: "It's like I have a split personality on and off the ice, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. People who only know me as a player don't know me at all."

Bruschi: Mayo will be best LB in NFL

NORTON — Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi said Monday that former teammate Jerod Mayo will be the "best linebacker in the game within two years." Speaking before his annual golf tournament at TPC Boston, Bruschi said the "sky is the limit" for the Tennessee product and former efensive Rookie of the Year.

"He's done things there in his short career with the Patriots that I wasn't able to do until my eighth or ninth year or something like that. That's how far along he is. That's how good he is," Bruschi said of the 6-foot-1, 245-pound Mayo. "I never had the ability that he has — how fast he is, how big he is and strong. The sky is the limit for him. I truly see him being the best linebacker in the game within two years. I think that's how good he is.

"No matter what defensive scheme [the Patriots] run," he added. "They'll run some 3-4. They'll run some 4-3 looks....
