He may be back in the lineup tomorrow night when the Orioles visit Fenway: "That would be what we'd be shooting for."
Daisuke Matsuzaka played catch, making 60-70 throws at distances of up to 180 feet. He will play catch again on Tuesday and is scheduled to throw a bullpen on Wednesday.Jon Lester told Rob Bradfod that he has no idea why he was suspended:
They didn't give a justified reason. I didn't get thrown out, and I didn't hit anybody on purpose. ... [Bob Watson] said, "You hit Crawford with a curveball and guys are hitting guys with curveballs now." It's stupid. ... It really is B.S. that I got suspended and Shields, the guy that hit somebody, only gets one more game than me.David Ortiz will have his wrist evaluated in another week. The antsy DH says he'll probably stay in Boston when the team travels to Cincinnati (June 13-15) and Philadelphia (June 16-18).
Guess what? The Red Sox are cursed again.
