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...

Report: Lackey deal for $82.5M

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the deal between the Red Sox and John Lackey was for five years and $87.5 million, or $17.5 million a year. If accurate, that average annual value (AAV) would be $1 million a year greater than the $16.5 million AAV that right-hander A.J. Burnett received from the Yankees with the five-year, $82.5 million deal he signed last offseason. (UPDATED: Olney later issued a correction that the deal was for five years and $82.5 million, the exact amount of Burnett's deal.)

 

Since GM Theo Epstein took over the club, the Sox have not signed a player to a contract of more than $70 million. That standard was set with the five-year, $70 million deal signed by outfielder J.D. Drew following the 2006 season.

Sox among 15 teams to see Chapman

According to ESPN.com, representatives of 15 teams were on hand to watch Cuban defector Aroldis Chapman throw a bullpen session on Tuesday in Houston. The report said that the left-hander did not throw at maximum effort, instead sitting mostly at 92-93 miles per hour and topping out at 96.

 

Chapman was clocked as high as 102 miles per hour in the World Baseball Classic in March. The 21-year-old left-hander is expected by major-league talent evaluators to receive more than $15 million as an international amateur free agent. For more on Chapman, visit the Full Count Blog.
