Sox unveil plans for 'Fenway South'

The Red Sox and Florida’s Lee County unveiled preliminary architectural drawings of the team’s new spring training complex that is slated to open in 2012, and it will have a familiar look to Sox fans. The new stadium in Fort Myers will feature a Green Monster-style wall in left field and replicate Fenway’s dimensions.

 

“This is an incredibly exciting step in bringing ‘Fenway Park South’ to Southwest Florida,” Red Sox executive vice president/business affairs Jonthan Gilula said in a press release. “These preliminary renderings are the result of tremendous effort on behalf of so many people. It reflects out pledge to replicate many of Fenway’s iconic elements while also creating a facility that respected and reflected the local environment.”

 

One of the major appeals for the Red Sox is the fact that the new location will house all of the training facilities,...

Report: Steelers re-sign NT Hampton

According to an ESPN report, the Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed nose tackle Casey Hampton to a three-year contract worth $21 million. Hampton's situation has been compared to that of Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork, although Hampton is four years older than the 28-year-old Wilfork. Hampton is a five-time Pro Bowler who has won two Super Bowls with Pittsburgh. Wilfork is a two-time Pro Bowl selection with one Super Bowl ring. The Steelers were considering putting the franchise tag on Hampton but were able to come to an agreement with the nine-year veteran who had 43 tackles and 2½ sacks last season. With Hampton signed, the Steelers used the franchise tag on kicker Jeff Reed.

Boychuk, Stuart return to B's practice

The Bruins returned to practice on Thursday at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington after nearly two weeks off for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Injured defensemen Johnny Boychuk (orbital bone) and Mark Stuart (finger) returned to action and participated in the full workout. Boychuk missed the Bruins final four games before the break after taking a puck to the face against Vancouver on Feb. 6. Stuart had surgery on his finger on Feb. 1 after a fight with the Kings' Wayne Simmonds on Jan. 30.

 

The full Bruins roster was present except for players that participated in the Olympics.

Report: Sox didn't call on Gonzalez

A club source with the San Diego Padres told the North County (CA) Times that while the Padres expected the Red Sox to pursue first baseman Adrian Gonzalez in the offseason, no such inquiries were made. The source goes on to say that no team approached San Diego about Gonzalez in the offseason. The report also touches on last season's trade deadline, in which the story says Seattle had the best chance at landing the slugger, with the Mariners and Padres lining up to do a six-for-one deal before then-San Diego general manager Kevin Towers held out for more player, which killed the trade.

Lucchino on D&C: 'Win with balance'

Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino stopped by to chat with Dennis & Callahan Thursday morning and said the team's front office and field staff is in agreement on the best way to form a competitive team. Said Lucchino: "I think everyone here is on the same song sheet. You win with balance and depth and pitching strength. You've got to have it all. It's interesting, because so much of that will be determined by new players this year."

 

As for people saying the offense will struggle this season, Lucchino said: "That's premature and grossly exaggerated, and there's more offensive capacity on this team than people realize."

 

Asked about the possibility of the Sox trading Mike Lowell, Lucchino said: "It could make sense if there were a good deal. There aren't the same players available now than there were in December. ... I hope Mike Lowell stays here. My preference is that we have...
