Moss expects '10 to be last year in NE

Randy Moss said Saturday that he expects 2010 to be his final season in a Patriots uniform.
 
Speaking at a charity softball game for former teammate Heath Evans in Florida to reporters from The Boston Globe and Boston Herald, Moss, who is entering the final year of a three-year contract, said he understands the financial realities of the situation if that does happen. In addition, he added that if that would happen, he would bear no ill will against the organization.

“I understand the beast, the nature of it. I think that just with what I think and what I know, I don’t think they’re going to re-sign me back,” he said. “So, after this season if there is not a lockout, I’ll be looking for a new team. I got a lot of respect for the Patriots and what they did for me and my family. So, the only thing I can do is just play this year out and see what my future holds after that.”

Theo: Bats could surprise skeptics

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- With the loss of slugger Jason Bay and talk of improved run-prevention, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein has heard the critiques of his team's projected lineup. But on Saturday he said he still believes the team can be one of the better offensive teams in the American League. "We still have a chance to be a really good offensive club," Epstein said. "I think there's been a lot of skepticism out there about our offense but I think we still feel like we can be one of the top handful of offenses in the league. And what we're really striving for is balance. We want to be one of the best pitching teams in the league, one of the best defensive clubs in the league and one of the offensive clubs in the league and in the years we've accomplished that, we've tended to do better."

Wakefield: 'I'll be one of the five'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Tim Wakefield told the media Saturday that he expects to be a starter in the rotation when the season begins. "My role in the rotation, I plan on being one of the five starters.

The 43-year-old pitcher told the media he spoke with general manager Theo Epstein, manager Terry Francona and pitching coach John Farrell and said, "I think Theo, Tito and John all feel we're a better team with me in the rotation."

Ellsbury on LF: 'Will make best of it'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Speaking at length for the first time since being moved from center to left field, Jacoby Ellsbury said Saturday he is welcoming the move and is looking forward to working with his replacement, Mike Cameron. "I try to look for the best in it and I think it's going to work out," Ellsbury said. "I don't think it should be a problem at all." His position won't be the only thing new for him this spring. He is switching from No. 46 to No. 2 after Brad Mills departed to take the Houston Astros managerial job in the offseason. Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia reported on Saturday, the same day as the first full workout for pitchers and catchers at the minor league complex. For more, visit the Full Count blog.
