You may have noticed that David Ortiz was not careening around the bases with his usual Usain Bolt-like speed—in fact, he was kind of limping the last couple of days. Well, word is that Big Papi will sit out tonight's game with a calf strain. Mike Npaoli will DH, while Mike Carp will play first base. Grady Sizemore will start in center and lead-off tonight.
