FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox have sold more than 2.6 million tickets for the 2010 season, with sales roughly matching those of a year ago at this time, according to Red Sox Chief Operating Officer Sam Kennedy.

The clarification was offered after the Boston Herald reported on Sunday that there were more than 6,000 tickets that remained available for the Sox’ April 4 Opening Day contest against the Yankees, and that prices had fallen 30 percent for such tickets compared to the 2009 home opener against Tampa Bay. Those figures may be accurate, but they portray the secondary ticket market of brokers and agencies, rather than the primary sale of tickets by the Red Sox to fans and other purchasers.

Report: Mauer, Twins near deal

According to ESPN.com, there are "strong indications" that the momentum is building towards a deal between the Twins and 2009 American League MVP Joe Mauer. The report stated that Mauer's agent, Ron Shapiro, was seen on Sunday afternoon in the airport in Fort Myers, a city in which both the Red Sox and Twins reside. While Mauer would become the object of a huge free-agent bidding war, multiple industry sources expect that a deal between him and the Twins will get done. Mauer, who comes from St. Paul, Minn., was taken by the Twins as the top overall pick in the 2001 draft.
