Beckett nixes in-season negotiations

Speaking on CSNNE's "SportsNet Central" Thursday night, Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett said he would most likely not negotiate a new contract with the Red Sox during the 2010 season, saying "Probably not," when asked if he would participate in any in-season talks. 

 

Beckett had said during a press conference Sunday at the Red Sox' minor league training facility that he and the Red Sox had "talked about talking" regarding a new deal. The pitcher's current contract runs out at the end of the 2010 season.

 

During the appearance, Beckett also said regarding his contract status, "It's really not in my control. I don't really have an answer right now, I don't really want to think about it. I think for me, my focus is really just being on coming into camp, getting ready for the long season and preparing myself the best I can."

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.
