Cameron: Fenway a fountain of youth

New Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron met the media at his introductory press conference at Fenway Park Wednesday morning and donned jersey No. 23. Cameron, 36, said he feels that playing in Boston will rejuvenate him. "Being a part of this every single day is going to bring some added youth to my spirit," he said, referring to the intensity level of Boston and the history of the ballpark. "It's pretty special for me."

 

Cameron said he didn't think his outfield skills have diminished. "I think I've played Gold Glove-caliber center field my whole career, I don't always get recognized for it, but the numbers speak for themselves," he said.

 

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said the Red Sox have targeted Cameron for some time. "He's been one of the most consistent players in the game," Epstein said. "He's going to hit his 25 home runs every year and play outstanding defense, sees...

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was a distant fifth, behind Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and ahead of Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt. Read the full story here.

Faxon doubts Woods was juicing

PGA Tour golfer and Rhode Island resident Brad Faxon checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the Tiger Woods situation. Asked when Woods might return to golf, Faxon said, "I hope sooner rather than later," adding, "If I was a betting man, I would say [a tournament near Woods' home] in Orlando." Faxon said he expects Woods will be back in time for The Masters in early April.

 

Added Faxon: "For him to get back on the course without getting shellacked by everybody, he needs to do something on one of the television shows [where he makes a public admission and/or apology]. If I was advising him, I would do it sooner rather than later."

 

Regarding recent reports that a doctor who has treated Woods is under investigation for possessing performance-enhancing drugs, Faxon said: "There's no way [Woods' handler] is going to let Tiger take any of these...
