EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox had hoped to have Ortiz in the lineup everyday from here on out during the regular season, but there are days when a 40-year-old athlete feels like a 40-year-old non-athlete. "Today is a bad day to be 40 years old," Ortiz said with a chuckle as he entered Fenway Park on Saturday. With Boston stretching its AL East lead to three games and facing left-hander CC Sabathia, Ortiz could get a one-day respite Sunday.
