Ortiz a Celtic?

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- If the Boston Celtics are looking for some help at center position, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz would be willing to give it a shot.

Prior to today’s Grapefruit League game against the Minnesota Twins, Ortiz said he recently had a dream that he played for the Celtics and scored 12 points in 22 minutes against the Miami Heat.

“The crowd was going crazy,” he said.

Ortiz said he played a lot when he was a kid and loves “taking it to the house.”
