According to, Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell will undergo a physical examination with the Texas Rangers this weekend.

King on D&H: Manning, Moss, Henry

Sports Illustrated NFL writer Peter King made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning and gushed about Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who has led Indianapolis to a 14-0 record with a number of impressive comebacks, including last night's against the Jaguars.

"I think Peyton Manning is absolutely remarkable."

Varitek not considering retirement

Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, at Fenway Park to speak with reporters for the first time since exercising his $3 million player option to return to Boston for the 2010 season, said that he is not yet giving any thought to the idea of retiring. While there will come a time when he considers doing so, his focus right now is on the coming season, rather than on the end of his career.


That said, the catcher acknowledged that he is ready for the likelihood of a diminished role in 2010. The Sox have already said that they anticipate that Victor Martinez will be their primary catcher next year. Varitek anticipates sitting down with manager Terry Francona and the Sox coaching staff in spring training, and will accept whatever role is defined for him.


"We've got time. We'll have our meetings in spring training," said Varitek. "Right now, I have to make sure I'm physically ready to go in spring training. That's what...
