Update: No changes in bullpen, says Valentine

Quick hits from Red Sox-Blue Jays pregame (check back for frequent updates):
5:30 P.M. -- As expected, Bobby Valentine said a) he's sticking with his present bullpen for now and b) Daniel Bard will make his scheduled start Tuesday night.
"I think we've got the arms in the bullpen to do what we have to do," said Valentine, who later added: "I don't think the deck has to be totally shuffled."
Im not very patient," said Valentine. "But I believe in my guys. As long as theyre wearing my uniform, I believe in them.
Also, CEO Larry Lucchino told weei.com it's "silly to overreact" to an 0-3 start.
3:53 P.M. -- Here is the Red Sox batting order for tonight's game:
Jacoby Ellsbury CFDustin Pedroia 2BAdrian Gonzalez 1BKevin Youkilis 3BDavid Ortiz DHCody Ross LFRyan Sweeney RFJarrod Saltalamacchia CMike Aviles SS

After mixing things up Sunday -- and getting 12 runs out of it -- Bobby Valentine is going back to his normal lineup . . . the one that scored two runs in the first two games.
Also, the Blue Jays' Opening Night ceremonies are expected to push first pitch well beyond the listed 7:07 p.m. starting time. Most expect the game to begin at approximately 7:30.
